I think this is a must when you are in Switzerland. The slow, two hour train rain, traversing the country side, serene, with its blue river and snow capped mountains, will not bore you for at all! You will be awed by the Swiss beauty, captivate you and would wish that this train will never end!

I travelled on quite a few journeys and found them all efficient and clean. Highly recommended. Booking in advance wasn't really necessary.

There is nothing to disappoint about this experience. Leaving Interlaken the train travels to Zweissmen before changing to the train with the panoramic carriage where the view of the scenery was breathtaking. The seats are comfortable, the Windows clean and the vista magnificent. This really is the best of Switzerland with the mountains, the villages, the rushing waterways and then... More

We took our near 6 year old son on the Golden Pass from Montreux to Zweissmen. It was a Short 2 and half hours journey but scenery was just breathtaking. I was fortunate to reserve the FIRST row in the panoramic train which has unobstructed views. That was definitely worth the extra costs. We then took the train to Broc... More

I took the Golden Pass Line for my travel from Gstaad to Montreux, and while this train moves slower than many others which are available, the views it offered throughout the journey were spectacular, and quite dynamic throughout.

The trip from Gstaad to Montreux is very beautiful. Sometimes you get to sit in a classic train, which adds to the experience. The trip is not too long so small children don't get too bored.

My sister and I traveled from Interlocken to Montreux. The day was beautiful and the service from the steward was exceptional. I highly recommend this train line.

Took the GoldenPass from Montreux to Zweissman and every part was beautiful! The views of the water were just as impressive as the views of the valleys. And no seat reservations or special tickets needed! All is included in the Swiss Travel Pass. What a deal!
