There ws not enough of a difference on the Glacier Exp train-- we could have saved quite bit and ridden in 2nd class.It was well worth it to reserve 3 months in advance to ride in the front row seats on the Golden Pass special Panoramic portion...

We travelled on Golden Paas line last week and it was truely menorable experience. Golden Pass line starts from Zweisemmen till Montreux. This 70Km journey takes you through multiple picture perfect locations. Infact everywhere it was so scenic that "How many picturea to click?" Is the question.. so another way is to take video. But since entire journey is so... More

Took a golden pass line from Lucerne to Interlaken. The train offers great scenery all the way. Sitting on the right side of the train while travelling towards Interlaken is best. The train is equipped with a decent restaurant too. If we had more time, we would have loved to take the train to Montreaux and stop over.

We were lucky to travel from Montreux to montboven and back for our cheese and choclate factories visits. Then next to next day we did montreux-lucern and it was wow. We had first class swiss pass and these train trips were included. This is a must do in switzerland. The staff is kind and nice too.

This rail tour took us from Vevey to Blonay, where we changed to the rack and pinion Train of the Stars, for the magnificent journey to the top of Les Pleiades, at an altitude of 1,348m. The views from the summit are spectacular. The AstroPleiades gave a fascinating insight into our solar system, the stars and the galaxies, with several... More

Do not get too hung up on left side or right side of the train. Just board the train and enjoy the journey. The views are awesome.

I was so looking forward to this trip, and it did not disappoint! We travelled from Lucerne - Interlaken OST which took nearly 2 hours. We had only just landed from our flight so I thought this was a good trip to do as it just included sitting and soaking up the scenery. It is worth upgrading to first class... More

It's kinda life experience taking this line. We took the classic train (return trip) with our Swiss Passes. The panoramic view was amazing. My recommendation, if you come from Montreux, take right-hand side, but if you come from Zweisimmen, take left-hand side. They have two themes in their wagons. we tried both ;-)
