Get in

By train

Trains between Geneva and Montreux travel along the northern shore of Lake Geneva and stop in Vevey. From elsewhere in Switzerland, you need to change in Lausanne. From Geneva the ride is about an hour and as of 2015 a return ticket costs CHF 56.

By bus

Take bus 1 from Montreux or Chateau de Chillon to Vevey's city centre and funicular.

By car

Vevey is next to the east-west autoroute A9, and A12 connects the city to Berne in the northeast. For a more scenic drive, there's always the lakeside highway 9 from Lausanne or Montreaux.

Get around

You can walk most of the old town but for an excursion take the mountain railway to Pleiades for some great views and skiing in season. Make sure you get the Riviera Card at your hotel, you'll be able to use the bus for free.

You can also get a free bike for whole day with CFS 20 deposit, which just in front of "COOP" super market next to the train station.
