Train Fondue

Escape the daily grind on the Fondue Train...
This 2018-2019 season, travel back in time on an incredible journey aboard our Vintage Train. Departing from Bulle, hop on board our retro service as it meanders through the stunning Gruyère countryside to Montbovon while you dine on a traditional Swiss fondue before tucking into the Gruyère region's famous dessert of meringue and double cream.
