How to get to the Vaud Alps

The Vaud Alps, a region easily accessible.

By car

The Vaud Alps are easily accessible via the major Swiss motorways. The various towns and villages are linked by roads and passes with exceptional alpine views that make your arrival in the region unique. The A9 motorway, which crosses the western quarter of the country, is part of the Swiss national network linking Vallorbe to Brigue, passing through Lausanne, Montreux and Sion. Arriving from Lausanne or Valais, you take the Aigle or Bex motorway exit to reach the various destinations in the Vaud Alps.

To drive on Swiss motorways, you need to buy a vignette for CHF 40. They can be purchased at customs, petrol stations, post offices or airports. This is an annual sticker that gives unlimited access to all motorways in Switzerland.

By train

Thanks to a dense railway network, the Vaud Alps are easily accessible by public transport. Several panoramic lines, including the Golden Pass (Montreux Oberland Bernois Railway Company), cross the region for a journey that combines comfort and magnificent views. From the main airports of Geneva, Zurich and Basel, or from major European cities such as Paris and Milan, your journey to the Vaud Alps can be made with complete peace of mind on the Swiss Railways (SBB) network.
