GoldenPass Cheese Train

This day trip reveals the secrets of a culinary speciality associated with Switzerland, namely cheese. Departing from the lakeside city of Montreux, a Belle-Epoque style GoldenPass train takes you to Pays-d’Enhaut, the birthplace of the alpine cheese, Etivaz AOP.

A trip through beautiful countryside, culinary treats and alpine culture: this is what a ride on the Cheese Train is all about.

The experience starts at 10.30 a.m. on the platform at Montreux Station where passengers receive a welcome gift and sample some cheese and wine. After a 1st class trip in a Belle Epoque train to the Château-d’Oex resort in the Vaudois Alps, they make their way to the Restaurant Le Chalet via a marked path. Here, they can then watch a cheese-making demonstration where the cheese-maker in traditional costume uses a wood fire to turn 160 to 200 litres of organic milk into a hard cheese. Naturally, there’s an opportunity to taste the cheese afterwards. Then a meal is served in a typical Swiss ambiance, including an organic cheese fondue and dessert. Before the return to Montreux at 5.13 p.m., there’s a chance to browse through the Musée du Vieux Pays-d’Enhaut with its traditional crafts and decorative items.
