Leysin Things to Do

  • by tetonausicaa Written Nov 17, 2006

    Guess i'm not much help, but if you go to Leysin, stop at the Le Feydey station and look for the Swatch shop (it was there 12 years ago). i'm only telling u guys based on my memory. if that Swatch shop is still there...it will be great...it carries a wide range of Swatches from Collection to normal wear. Swatch fans...you will love it.

    We had to take a cable car ride up from the small town of Leysin to reach the summit where the restaurant was located. It was day light when we left for the restaurant. On our jouney back down the mountain there were no lights along the cable car path. With the storm approaching and lightning flashing it was an exciting trip back down the mountain. It was literally pitch black outside the car. It was like you were floating down into nowhere. Then the lightning would flash and you could see the mountains all around you. It was a bit scary but also very exciting. I think I enjoyed it a little more than I should have. The poor man sitting next to me was afraid of heights to begin with. And here I was staring out the windows fascinated with the darkness and the storm.

    Everywhere you go in Switzerland the vistas and summits are so beautiful that its difficult to put them into words. Leysin is located on the train that travels from Aigle to Les Diablarets. Its a long climb from Aigle. But Les Diablarets is still a ways up the mountain. While we were having our dinner here in the evening a storm started to approach the area. We had to end our meal early before dessert due to the declining weather conditions.

    Le Leysin is a wonderful experience, combining the unique atmosphere of dining in the village fromagerie (cheese factory) with wonderful local wine and food. Our fondue was made with local cheeses and absolutely devine, not dominated by the flavour of wine. The raclette was more food than anyone could manage.
