When we made overland travel in Switzerland, we found that the Swiss train system was very reliable. Considering that they make 'precision' clocks and watches, we are not totally surprise that the arrival and departure of trains were very punctual. We landed from Paris at Geneva airport and bought tickets from the counter at the terminal. As there was no... More

Living in the Lausanne area, we always wanted to enjoy the Goldenpass trip from Montreux to Zweisimmen. Due to the lack of snow last year we decided not to go. Last weekend we booked a trip from Montreux to Zweisimmen for a certain hour in the morning as we had to catch some other trains to Lucerne. In fact we... More

I did this on my last day of my AG (Swiss travel card) so it didn't cost me a penny. Started in Montreux and went all the way to Zweissimmen. Quite possible to jump out at Gstaad or somewhere for a break and continue the journey later. It's not your regular Swiss train. the Golden Pass train has panoramic windows,... More

If you take the train to Broc, you get a discount if you take the water "taxi" you get a discount. Don't have to pay for the local bus fare.

Boxing day 2014, took the (Montreux - Zweisimmen - Interlaken - Luzern) route. Snow capped mountains, stunning lakes, snowfall along the way, idyllic villages/towns and lots of greenery. Nothing can prepare you for this, utterly beautiful - video and pictures do not give this magnificent train route any justice. Very comfortable trains - all perfectly timed, ample to transfer luggages... More

We took the old style carriage up to Zweissimen as a bonus, travelling in First class. It was a joy of a ride, with clear skies the entire train trip up. The views are breathtaking. There is no price difference for the older style carriages compared to the new ones. We walked around Zweissimen for about a few hours before... More

This panoramic train has beautiful views. Rolling hills, mountains, charming villages, it has it all. Make sure it is a clear day when you go. We did the whole trip, but split it up on 2 separate days. We went from Montreux to Interlaken via the GoldenPass one day, and then we stayed three nights in Wengen. Then we went... More

The panoramic train is really worth the views, but make sure you travel with clear skies. Took the ride from Luzern to Montreux, with an overnight stay in Interlaken. The swiss countryside views are really out of a fairytale.
