Comfortable train. Not crowded. Great panoramic views of the Bernese Oberland. Sannen was beautiful with the church, river and chalets. Enjoyed the Alp horn experience too. Gstaad was stunning. Lovely street sculptures and fountains.

We travelled only a part of tour or from Interlaken to Montreux. The train passes through a very scenic beauty. It's worth the journey. You can plan while visiting the places on route . Ensure you have Swiss pass or proper tickets Reservations not necessary
