Funivin from Sierre to Crans-Montana

Take the funicular railway and travel in safety when you sample Valaisan wines at the Château de Villa in Sierre between March and November.

Our package includes

  • 1 return ticket on the funicular railway from Crans-Montana to Sierre (or vice versa)
  • a wine tasting at the Château de Villa’s wine shop
  • a visit to the Wine Museum in Sierre and/or Salgesch

If you would like to explore the world of Valaisan wine, we recommend doing it the safe way with the Funivin package.

The funicular railway

means you don’t need to drive between Sierre and Crans-Montana, and can enjoy your wine tasting session to the full. You get off the train at Muraz, then follow the wine trail to the Château de Villa, a splendid 16th-century castle.

The Wine Museum

Located in the heart of Valais, The Wine Museum looks back over the history of this exceptional mountain wine-producing culture, inspired by tradition and passion.

The Wine Museum has two sites: a permanent exhibition at the centre in the Maison Zumofen in Salgesch and  a centre for temporary exhibitions immediately adjacent to the Château de Villa in Sierre. The Wine Trail links the two sites, crossing a vine-clad landscape and revealing the beauty and working life of the vineyards in all seasons.

The Château de Villa 

The wine tasting takes place at the Château de Villa’s wine shop. You will be given a voucher for CHF 18 per person, enabling you to taste 4 or 5 wines by the glass, including the “welcome” drink offered on arrival (Fendant, Pinot, Gamay, Dôle or locally-produced fruit juice).

A choice of 640 wines and the knowledge of over 100 wine-makers are brought together in this very special cellar. Each week, visitors can taste a selection of 8 wines (by the glass) from 4 different wine-growers, and then buy a bottle or two to take home.


From March to November
