Hello!We are arriving in Geneva on Tuesday Sept 8th and would then like to make our way up to the Gruyere region for a few days to do some hiking. We have looked at Charmey as a possible home base as they also have the Bains therme in that town. Question: we are interested in perhaps taking the Chocolate train from Montreux to take advantage of the different places it visits however I cannot find a site that specifically lists the itinerary for the day. We were thinking of doing this day trip, but rather than returning back to Montreux, we would just get off the train up in the Gruyere region (maybe the last stop before it returns back to Montreux.Would you know the specific itinerary and if you think this plan would be possible? It looks like the last stop might be Broc before it heads back to Montreux which would be perfect for us as we can take the bus from Broc to Charmey.Thank you so much!

Thanks for joining us, Toonses1, and welcome!

Information on the Chocolate Train can be found at the Golden Pass website. The downloadable brochure there lists the timetable and intermediate stops. It's no problem to book this trip and get off whenever you like, instead of completing the whole journey back to Montreux again. The last stop before Montreux is Gruyeres, not Broc.

Alternatively, you can plan a similar trip yourself with the aid of the timetable, using regular trains and visiting the cheese dairy and chocolate factory on your own.
