I am planning to do the Chocolate Train trip from Interlaken. I am planning to do the trip in between 3rd to 6th May 2020.

Is that possible to do the trip in a day from Intetlaken. I know the Chocolate train starts from Montreux.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hello Harpreet G,

Welcome to MySwissAlps!

Yes, you can board from Interlaken to Montreux, to board the Chocolate Train journey. If that is a absolute must in regards to Interlaken being one of your travel bases, you will have to catch the train from Interlaken at 6:00 am to get to Montreux at 8:19 am because 8:44 am is the departure for the Chocolate Train journey (2019 schedule). However, please refer to the train timetable before departure to make sure you catch your train transfers as well as the Chocolate Train timetable from the MOB website

Be sure to check out these interesting links as well:

Happy planning!

Best regards,

The “Chocolate Train” is a full day excursion you would take if you were staying in Montreux. It’s not worth doing it from Interlaken.

If you feel you absolutely must go to the Cailler factory then the SBB timetable will offer you a much more direct route to Broc Fabrique (and Gruyéres if you want to include the cheese thing) on regular trains.

By far the best way to check timetables, find fares* and buy tickets on-line if required is using the SBB Mobile app (bit.ly/2ICIUHi). In the unlikely event you don’t have a device capable of running the app then you can use the timetable on the SBB website (bit.ly/2HH1U7B). If you are not familiar with using the timetable it will pay to first read the instructions at www.myswissalps.com/ti metable.

* The SBB website shows half-fare prices by default, the mobile app allows you to nominate whether to show full or half-fares (by editing the passenger details in settings) and is also smart enough to offer you the Saver Day Pass (www.myswissalps.com/sa verdaypass) if that offers the best fare. The app also show a platform map (at least at the larger stations) to help you make connections.
