This is just an amazing and breathtaking route. Unbelievable landscapes, green fields/ meadows and snow peaks also train's panoramic coaches are mind blowing. I have done Bernina & Golden pass in May 2016. But i like Golden pass line more. It is a competition between green landscapes & ice covered glaciers. I took it from Zweisimmen to Gstaad & Chateau...

As part of our holiday in Lucerne, Interlaken and Montreaux the Golden Pass was meant to be a highlight. The trip from Lucerne to Interlaken was very pretty but was impacted by the bad weather which significantly reduced what we could see of the mountains. Still an enjoyable trip though. The journey from Interlaken to Montreaux was disappointing as even... More

The Swiss trains are the worst - they do not care about visitors at all. The announcements are not made in English - but they certainly want all the money from English speaking travelers. But they can't be bothered to alert people traveling in their country that their trains have lots of thieves and pick pockets in them. That even... More

We took the first class train tickets from Interlaken to Lucerne – CHF 56 per person. The views were nice and the first class coach was almost vacant. But I am not sure what the difference would have been with the second class tickets. I was strongly suggested to buy first class tickets but I feel otherwise. I thought that... More

The Chocolate train is your pick if you like sitting in a train that stands for long period with no air condition The Groyer cheese factory and Callier chocolate factory are realy places to visit but there is no reason doing this in the Chocolate train, just go and visit yourself. The train is very slow and it stops for... More

We weren't able to complete the entire journey due to dearth of time but we took the train ride from Lucerne to Interlaken on a golden pass line and it was a beautiful experience. The 2 hour journey was so mersemerising that we have made it a point to complete the whole journey next time around. Travelling in between mountains... More

We travelled from Lucerne to Montreux, and found the scenery amazing. As others have noted, there are 2 changes of train, with the last, at Zweissemmen having only 6 minutes for the change from the Swiss Railway train to the Golden Pass company scenic train. The first leg went smoothly and we arrived at Interlaken Ost on time. However the... More

This is a must travel train ride and if you have the time, you get to stop halfway to visit the chocolate factory before carrying on your journey to Interlaken or Lucerne. Be ready to switch seats from left to right and back again depending on the turns of the train, as certain parts of the views are better on... More

The train runs evey hour between Lucerne and Interlaken. The panoramic carriages have automatic ramps, so the wheelchair user can just turn up and ride, without having to book assistance in advance. The views are great, and the steeply inclined cog sections are a novel experience. If you want Interlaken West and the Old Town, there are connecting trains from... More
