Chocolate Train

Switzerland is famous for its chocolate and its railroads. Put them together, and you get the Swiss Chocolate Train - a first-class-only excursion train operates from Montreux between June and October.


The Chocolate Train runs on tracks of the Montreux-Oberland-Bernois Railway (MOB). Coffee and croissants are served on the train, which offers scenic views of vineyards and bucolic countryside on its way to the medieval cheesemaking town of Gruyères.


In Gruyères, the train pauses for an excursion by bus to a cheese factory and the local castle. Then you board the train again for the trip to Broc, home of the Cailler-Nestlé chocolate factory, where you can watch a multilingual video, observe chocolate production, sample the finished product, and buy Cailler or Nestlé candy bars at factory prices.
