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.

We took this train from Interlaken through to Montreux and the scenery is breathtaking. I would advise reserving a seat as it can get busy. There is a refreshment trolley service for the basic beverages and snacks etc.

Found it a bit over-rated. We did the Geneva - Montreux - Chateau d'Oex return trip taking the Cheese train (Train Du Fromage). The train was beautiful with wooden panels and a vintage feel. The tour guide was lovelywho shared interesting facts about places on the route. However, the scenic view (for which the golden pass is known for) was... More

Huge windows to enhance viewing opportunities. We took the train from Montreux to Les Gruyere and back with a stop in Montbovon to find chocolate in Cailler. The ride was the most scenic and was everything I dreamed about as a little girl dreaming to come to Switzerland. I was under the weather....so forgive me if I don't remember the... More

As with all Swiss trains, the Golden Pass line is no exception. The "Golden Pass" really refers to the overall journey on this train through scenery unequalled any where else in the world. When traveling in Switzerland in the vicinity of this train (which only goes from Montreux to Geneva or reverse) you must do this train trip. An equally... More

We took it from Spiez to Montreux, a half-day ride through hill and valley that is well worth it. Unfortunately, it ends up in Montreux :(

Took golden pass to cheese factory and Cailler chocolate factory and both were well. Worth the trip. You can taste all the chocolate you can eat at the end of the tour at Caillers.
