Hi,

We will be travelling from Wengen in the morning to Montreux during our stay in Switzerland. We want to make a stop over at the Maison Callier, La Maison du Gruyere and the castle at Gruyere.

We are having trouble figuring out where we should leave our luggage in order to go to these places, as we know a lot the rail stations do not have lockers. We do not want to go to Montreux first and then go back to Gruyeres because the trip back would take up too much time. We are also on a budget, so we do not want to ship our luggage to Montreux (if that is even possible). Any ideas on where we could leave our luggage would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Cindy

Hi Cindy123,

Gruyeres train station does offer lockers. SBB's website doesn't specify on sizes or prices anymore on many stations - but they are there. :)

You can search train stations on SBB's website and see what amenities they have. Find a link to train station services on our luggage page here: www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/practical/luggage

Hi Lucas,

Are there lockers at Bulle Station as well, as that will likely be where we will want to leave our luggage.

Hi Cindy,

Use my last link for luggage at SBB stations to search for any train station and if they have lockers or left luggage offices.

I found that for Gruyeres they don't list prices for lockers as they aren't there apparently....

Bulle station doesn't have lockers either but nor do they have a "lockers" heading without a price beside it (more obvious to me that there aren't lockers there)!

It does show a left luggage office though - with opening hours listed on the website.
