We hope to visit the Cailler chocolate factory and were wondering if there is a bus line that we can take from the train station in Broc or Gruyeres? I know there is a chocolate train that runs from Montreux thru Broc to the factory but was wondering if there was a local bus line that we could pick up from the train station in Broc rather than coordinating travel with the chocolate train. We'll be coming by train from Interlaken. Thanks.

Broc-Fabrique station is a 2 minute walk from the Chocolate Factory.

Use the SBB Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to plan your trip.

The quickest route is via Bulle. A slower route is via Montbovon so you can do a circuit if returning to Interlaken.

A map to illustrate Rockoyster's reply. From the train station (Broc-Fabrique) to the chocolate factory (Maison Cailler) is only about 120 metres (131 yards). No doubt you are aware that Cailler is owned by Nestlé !

Aware of the Nestle connection but trying not to let that influence my enthusiasm.
