Swiss Vapeur Parc, Le Bouveret

The Swiss Vapeur Parc is a miniature park in Le Bouveret, a village on Lac Léman, Switzerland. It was opened on June 6, 1989, by an International Festival of Steam (therefore steam trains). When the park opened its total surface area was 9000 m² (2.2 acres), but the park expanded and as of 2007, the park covers a surface area of 17'000 m² (or 4.2 acres). In 1989, the park possessed only 2 locomotives (one running on benzine and one on steam). As of 2007, the number of trains running on benzine has sextupled while the number of steam trains has increased to 9 trains. By March 31, 2007, the Park has had 2'126'000 visitors.

Every June the park is host to the International Steam Festival.

  • Lovely little (pardon the pun) miniature railway near the Swiss French boarder. We had a fun half day touring around the place with a 5 and 3 year old. There are three 'lines' so if the station near the entrance is busy navigate your way to one of the quieter ones first (everyone naturally waits at the one near the entrance as soon as they arrive)
  • Great place to visit with young children. Conveniently located next to the train station and lots of parking. They have places to eat or shaded benches to picnic. Better to bring a baby carrier than a stroller because you'll need to park it at the entrance to ride the trains. The park is a good size for small children and easy to walk around.
