The Goldenpass Line has to be one of Switzerland best kept secrets. The scenery is both beautiful and breathtaking. We even had the unexpected pleasure of travelling in utterly charming classic Belle Époque carriages. The second class carriages were so posh, I actually checked with the train staff and asked whether we had accidently sat down in first class. Apparently... More

We only took the Golden pass train ride from Montreux to Zweissman. We did not realize that you have to get off midway to Interlaken, and wait for another train, which was after 20 mins. The ride out of Montreux was really good, with a panoramic view of Lake Geneva, and surrounding mountains. Closer to Zweissman was nothing special. If... More

I took this train twice. Once from Montreux to Spiez and the second time from Interlaken to Lucern. The entire route is lovely but i personally loved the route from Interlaken to Lucern. The lakes and the mountains in this region are out of this world. There are many small villages in this entire route where you can stop and... More

Golden Pass line has variety of trains (Classic, Panoramic, Normal ). I travel in normal GoldenPass Panoramic train from Bern to Montreux via Lausanne. The entire ride was fantastic, with extremely beautiful scenery everywhere from start to end. In Panoramic train, we can lower down the window and enjoy the wind, fresh air, and take better pictures, and as I... More

A friend told me the Golden Pass line was one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world, he was right, this is certainly the most beautiful I have been on. We travelled 2nd class, I don't believe you would need to go 1st unless you would like the extra service, the carriages were not a lot different. The... More

We took the Chocolate and Cheese Train and we could not ask for a better experience. I went online to book the tickets but there was no seats available for online booking. Not a problem. I e-mailed the GoldenPass center and they got back to me immediately confirming two seats for the date we wanted and I was able to... More

A beautiful trip from Zweisimmen to Montreux. The scenery of countryside, and mountains had our heads swiveling from one side to the other to try to see it all. And when the train descends to the point where you can see the Lake of Geneva, it is an extraordinarily beautiful view framed by mountains and clouds. This train ride is... More

Lauterbrunnen this is the golden pass panoramic route...takes 4 1/2 hours there are other options, less time but... More
