Salon Rouge: Enjoy Riding in Style
Between early June and late October, the Salon Rouge is back on the rails, a very special train, not least in culinary terms. It can take as many as 30 guests on a trip down (and up) memory lane.
Our Salon Rouge special combines railway nostalgia with the finest onboard cuisine: In our stylish vintage train coach, you and your guests can choose from a large selection of cold and hot delicacies and between one and 13 courses – whichever suits your palate. We will also be happy to serve you our popular “steam sausage and rack rail bread” combo – fresh from the hot copper boiler.
Pushed by a first-generation engine and accompanied by a small cargo car, on your ascent and descent you will experience fascinating railway technology with all your senses. Witness from up close how the 125-year-old locomotive, fuelled by 300 kilograms of coal and 2000 litres of water, and operated by a crew of five, works its way up the mountainside, offering you a fantastic view of the Bernese Oberland.
Public rides with the Salon Rouge
And there is even more this summer: By popular (i.e., our passengers’) demand, the Salon Rouge will be open to all our guests on select days. One more reason to treat yourself or others to something very special for your or their birthday, anniversary, or simply as a surprise:
|Monday 3 July 2017||Friday 4 August 2017||Sunday 3 September 2017||Sunday 1 Oktober 2017|
|Friday 14 July 2017||Monday 7 August 2017||Friday 15 September 2017||Saturday 14 Oktober 2017|
