Charter trains

  Groups are welcome to charter the train in advance; a most unusual way to visit the region!

Charter trips can be organized with pre-arranged stops or request stops at the most interesting spots.

The accompanying crew is composed of local folks who can give all the accurate information and more.
The most interesting route originates in Neuchâtel and follows the Franco-Suisse railway line through the breathtaking Areuse Gorge and across varied and stunningly beautiful landscapes.

We hope we've wetted your appetite, a prerequisite to your first taste of l'absinthe, the local drink!
