“I held a marmot!”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

The train ride from Montreux was an amazing experience with incredible views from both sides of the train..Everyone from the train driver to the café workers were friendly, polite and very welcoming. Someone with a passion for marmots showed us around and introduced us to the nest of babies and even let me hold one as it was slowly coming out of hibernation.It made my day! The snow at the top along with the sunshine made the panoramic view breathtaking.
An expensive by worthwhile day out!
