How to Reach

By train

Leysin is served by the Swiss Federal Railways which has a cog-wheel train which runs once per hour from the Aigle station, which is timed to connect with the main Swiss National trains arriving from Montreux on the Geneva-Brig line. On certain dates during the ski season there are direct TGV trains from Paris to Brig offering the same connection at Aigle. The trains up to Leysin leave from track 12, which is actually in front of the Aigle station in the parking area (it's the track closest to the buses).

Places to Visit

The Berneuse Cable-Car, Place Large, about 100m east from the Leysin-Feydey stationOpen daily sunrise to sunset. The views on the ride up are nearly as spectacular at those from the top. On a clear day you can take in Mt. Blanc, the Eiger, and Lausanne from this perch above Lac Leman. 18 Chf round trip during the summer, 42 Chf for adults, 30 Chf for a half day during the ski season.

Tobogganing Park Leysin, at the southern edge of the village. Claiming to be the first toboggan park in the world which allows snow tubing in bobsled like runs, the toboggan park is a good alternative for kids and adults who are a bit too afraid of heights to ski, but who feel the need for snow and speed. Tickets for an hour and 50 minutes go for 20 Chf for adults and 15 Chf for kids. A single run on a tube is 3 Chf. The Leysin park is considered by some to be the best one in whole of Europe for its great jumps and chances for inexperienced skiers and snowboarders to practice without pressure

Kids' Sledding. There's a fairly well maintained sledding run for kids oppsite the Patinoire. It's completely bowl-shaped, so there's no risk of sledding out of control.
