The 1.5 hr train ride from Montreux to Gstaad is fantastic! We purchased 1st class tickets plus paid a supplement to sit at the very front of the train - so well worth it! The front is all glass so you feel like you're driving the train. It was so relaxing & beautiful and we'll definitely do it again -... More

Switzerland has lots of scenic railways and this is up there with the best. In mid-December, I found myself sharing the whole carriage with one other person on the journey from Montreaux to Zweismmen and back. Stopped off at Gstad on the way back. Looks nice but not to my personal taste, much preferred the busier Montreaux.

Scenic train trip between Montreux on Lake Geneva, via snowy mountained Interlaken to Lucerne. Opportunity to utilise 2 types of trains - "old" type with lovely ambiance and modern "panoramic" type. Good stops along the way to enjoy traditional Swiss breakfast, e.g. Chateau D'Oex. Great lunch service on the train. A must do in Switzerland, add to your bucket list!

~Getting to platform 5 for our Zweisimmen segment on Goldenpass Classic was easy ~even with 1st Class Swiss Travel Pass, we'd paid to reserved seats at the SBB CFF FSS website for Coach 11 Seats 11/12 ~but for a June Tue 0844 departure, we needn't have bothered, leaving Montreux there were only 4 other passengers on the same coach (ie...

Excellent way to spend the morning. This trip provides you with the most spectacular scenery as long as the weather is clear.

if you have kids this is a nice place to keep the angels busy for some time. I'd recommend if for kids 3 to 10.

Took the GoldenPass Panoramic Train from Montreux to Gstaad at the end of November. As the journey progressed the snow on the ground became thicker and views more stunning. You have the choice of the modern panoramic train or classic train. Get your timings right and you could experience both trains on your trip, one going and the other back... More

We were unaware of this particular "specialty" train ride until friends had mentioned it. Plus, saw an article about it in AAA Magazine. Then, as we booked our 23 day train itinerary via RailEurope, they had information about it too. We departed from Lucerne, and with 3 VERY easy train changes, rode through the Alps, winding up in Montreux on... More

It is the best option to see Montreux from the Top! The train goes down in the hill until Montreux Train Station and provides a breathtaking view from the city. It is amazing and unforgetable! One of the best things to do in MOntreux if you like nice views and pictures! Don't miss this opportunity! Go to Montreux Train Stion... More
