That was definetely a "must do tour" if you want to see green mountains of Switzerland and mountain life. I chose classical type of train and it was very good and nostalgic. But the small lamps on the table reflected though the window and sometimes I could not take better photos. You can not turn off the lamp... On my... More

My wife and I did a round trip from Montreux to Zwisimmen on the Panoramic train. The views were wonderful. Taking photos was tricky because of trees and poles, but I took my share. It was an awesome experience.

You may reserve the VIP seats when you buy your pass or on the web page, you'll have a frontal view the same as the train... More

Everyone should get the chance to take this rail experience in good weather. The zig-zag departure (or approach) from Montreux gives you every possible angle of the city and lake for photos. Of course, your photos have to be timed around trees and poles, but you get the picture. The views are just gorgeous. Further away from the lake, you... More

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
