Cheese Train

Since 2013, the Cheese train has been looking into the secrets of Switzerland’s most popular dairy product. In wintertime, a special coach of the Montreux–Oberland Bernoise railway sets course for the Pays-d’Enhaut in the Lake Geneva region.

Every Thursday to Sunday, the “Train du Fromage”, or Cheese train, runs between Montreux/Zweisimmen and Chateau d’Oex in the Lake Geneva region.

At Chateau d’Oex, travellers first find out how 200 litres of milk are turned into “Le Chalet Bio” cheese. Afterwards, a delicious bio fondue is served at the restaurant Le Chalet. Finally, the Museum du Pays-d’Enhaut delights visitors with its unique collection of intricate, traditional paper cuttings.
