We travelled on the Golden pass line in both panoramic and classic coaches from Montreux. We particuarly loved the old school ambience of the classic coaches, and for us, were more of a highlight than the panoramic, although nearly as good. The trains are extremly clean, well maintained, and the team both at the sation and on the train, were... More

This is a beautiful train trip through the Swiss Alps. The journey was a highlight of our stay in Switzerland. The scenery is magnificent and ever changing. If travelling through to Interlaken or Luzern then you will continue to enjoy more magnificent scenery of lakes and mountains. Give it a try it was wonderful.

We booked the VIP seats on the second row. The scenary from Interlaken to Montreux is overall very pretty and enjoyable. But in general you will get the similar nice scenary pretty much everywhere in Switzerland so there is no particular need to take this specific train unless you happen to travel between these 2 places. You can enjoy the... More

The entire trip is divided into 3 1) Luzern to Interlaken Ost 2) Interlaken Ost to Zwisimmen 3) Zwisimmen to Montreux We travelled on the 1st lag only due to prior commitments. The journey was amazing the best aspect was when we crossed Lungern. I'll suggest to take the train from Luzern only so that you can get a seat... More

My wife and I rode the train from Montreux to Interlaken. The scenery along the way was absolutely beautiful. We took many different trains while traveling in Switzerland for 3 weeks and this was without question the most beautiful ride of the lot. The train equipment is very modern and comfortable and built to enable the passengers to really enjoy... More

The town of Gruyere was breathtakingly beautiful. Had fondue, beer& panoramique views! And then: Maison Cailler awaited us! So interesting& interactive... But the best bit was last: chocolate tasting or should... More
