The event is a perfect family outing – there’s plenty of space to run about and breathe in deep the pure mountain air. Food vendors serve traditional and not-so-traditional fare. For a bit of extra fun and less searching for a parking place, take the Golden Pass train from Montreux. And be sure to request the schedule for either the traditional or panoramic view cars for memorable ride.
