Hello,

I received the following from SBB, and have a bit of trouble interpreting. Does it mean that they will hold your lugagge basically for CH5F a day? We want to be able to go to Gruyeres for a few hours without luggage.

Hi Vlasta. It seems that on both railway stations you can hand in your luggage at the luggage department (which is actually meant for shipping it to other railways stations) and that they'll hold it there, so that you can visit Gruyères for a couple of hours without your suitcases. You'll have to pay CHF 5.00 per piece of baggage. If I understand it correctly, the costs are CHF 5.00 for the first two days and CHF 5.00 for each following day. But even if you use the service for a few hours, you'll probably have to pay CHF 5.00 per piece of baggage.
