We rode the golden pass panoramic train from montreux to Gstaad and it was the best trip ever! Amazing and breathtaking views of the nature as well as the small villages along the path of the train. You could stop before Gstaad too and explore the areas. It's a must do to see the beautiful Alps as well as the... More

When you go to the website and you think you are buying a ticket, the only cost that they show is for a seat reservation. Then once you purchased the NON REFUNDABLE fee you find out that is only the reservation and that you have to buy a train ticket around 70 Euros 2nd class or 115 Euros first. They... More

The view is really awesome. Having a Swiss pass no other reservation was necessary. Trains also had dining car. But the view from the train is what will charm you to return again and again.

My husband and teenage daughter travelled from Montreux to Zweissimen on the Golden Pass classic train then transferred to a regular train towards Interlaken. The views were spectacular specially the first section of the journey, but could use a little more leg room and luggage area.

My wife and I took the journey from Montreux up to Chateux ODeux (?) where we saw the famous Gruyere cheese being made in the traditional method and then enjoyed a Fondue lunch. The train journey was spectacular and worth the relatively modest (Swiss) cost. We were travelling on a Eurail pass so only had to pay about 35CHF each... More

We travelled from Geneva to Interlaken and chose to do the journey from Montreux onwards on the Golden Pass Line and the section from Montreux to Zweisimmen in the Old fashioned train made up of viewing carriages. Travelling in this direction we went from the border of Switzerland into its heart and experienced the transformation of higher mountains and more... More

We had a lot belt trip to gstaad. We upgraded to first class on the way up and it was comfortable and lovely. We had waitress service for drinks. The views are amazing and it was so relaxing. Second class was ok and the views are the same but not quite the comfort of first class. Really lovely trip

Would recommend this 3 train route. I travelled first class from Lucerne . The Lucerne to Interlaken train had no stairs to necogiate , had tv screens displaying web cam pics and route maps. I had bought some food from the Co-op in the basement of the train station,as tap water is safe to drink I refilled my water bottle.... More

One of the very beautiful routes in the world, full of natural beauty. This is a must do train ride in the Swiss. The panaromic train takes you through the high bridges, rivers, lake views and the beautiful snowy mountains. What an amazing and unforgettable experience it is. Remember that only first class boggy gives panaromic views with full glasses... More
