Château d'Oex

Apparently the first hot air balloon to go around the world was launched from Chateau d'Oex (not far from Montreux).

Of course we will go in the spring (the balloon festival is in January), so I don't know if we'd see any balloons. (Yesterday someone who knows the area told me: "You will not see balloons in April.")

There's a special train from Montreux to Chateau d'Oex--and the ride up and back is supposedly quite beautiful. Might be a good day trip.
