Train Fondue

Escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life and take time out to enjoy some of our regional specialities.
A day out for foodies! Join the vintage train in Bulle to enjoy a journey through the Gruyère countryside to Châtel-St-Denis and savour a silky smooth Swiss cheese fondue and a famous regional dessert: meringues with double cream. Gourmet option: your hostess can arrange a visit to the Maison Cailler (a chocolate factory) in Broc before you board the Fondue Train. A supplement of 10 CHF per person (which includes admission) is charged for this option. 
The Fondue Train is now on TripAdvisor. Take the opportunity to review it.
