In Broc you’ll visit the Cailler-Nestlé Chocolate Factory where you’ll nosh on delicious and delectable chocolate treats.

Choose to travel in old-fashioned elegance by train in a vintage Pullman “Belle Epoque” carriage or go ultramodern in a sleek panoramic car with over-sized windows. Either way, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views of the vineyards that surround Montreux and medieval Gruyères. You’ll savor both the heavenly chocolate samples at the Nestlé Factory, and the views of Lake Gruyères and the Alps surrounding it.
