Salon Rouge

Connoisseurs experience a unique, top-class concept in and with our Salon Rouge restaurant car from the Belle Époque. The offer appeals to all five senses in an enjoyable way! The trips start at 10.15 a.m. on the ramp of the Brienz Rothorn Bahn workshop and end at 2.45 p.m. at the Brienz valley station. With a look behind the scenes and interesting background information, the excursion starts in the depot of the Brienz Rothorn Bahn. Half an hour later, the composition steams off with a historic coal-fired steam locomotive and the Salon Rouge in Brienz. Past forests and flower meadows with leisurely stops on the route and a total of eleven courses, our Salon Rouge guests are pampered to the full – experience gastronomy at its finest!
