The Cheese Train is the perfect experience for food lovers in search of authenticity.
Travelling in first class from Montreux to Château-d'OEx, you'll arrive at Restaurant Le Chalet to watch a demonstration of traditional cheese making skills, followed by the pleasure of eating their delicious fondue. After that, you will discover Swiss arts and crafts at the Musée du Vieux Pays-d'Enhaut.
DEMONSTRATION OF ARTISAN CHEESE MAKING
The Restaurant Le Chalet makes its own cheese, "Le Chalet Bio". Dressed in traditional costume, the cheesemaker transforms about 200 litres of organic milk into a hard cheese right in front of your eyes. You can lend a hand in this truly authentic process that takes place over an open wood fire, just like in the alpine chalets. The freshly produced cheese can be tasted at the end of the demonstration.
RESTAURANT LE CHALET
Warm, cosy and thoroughly typical, Le Chalet welcomes you into its rustic setting. An excellent organic cheese fondue will be waiting for you there. And there's the opportunity to buy delicious local products and regional souvenirs in their boutique. Upstairs, there's a model of our trains and the landscape they travel through that will appeal to young and old.
MUSÉE DU VIEUX PAYS-D'ENHAUT
This folk art museum brings together the work of 100 découpeurs (paper cutters) under the title of "Suisse Miniature". An excellent opportunity to see how these artists perceive the world around them through their paper silhouettes. An unmissable event! (Audio guides available in E, F and G)
