The best way to experience the Swiss Alps, short of climbing them. This special panoramic train climbs the Alps and travels through them from Luzerne to Montreaux on Lake Geneva. We traveled from Zweisemen to Montreaux, which we were told is the most dramatic portion...More

I booked front VIP seats for our journey from Montreux to Zweismanen it was a different experience sitting in a train in the very front. i think not many journeys offer this kind of a seating. May be "One of its kind" in the world!

The golden pass line passes from a few destinations like Lucerne to Interlaken but we took the one from Montbovon to Montreux in Switzerland. The railway station in Montbovon is just like a small house and has its own unique style and charm and once...More

We took the GoldenPass train from Montreaux to Interlaken. Amazing views of beautiful valleys and towns. Upgraded to first class for the panoramic cars. Exactly what you picture when you think of Switzerland 🇨🇭.

We could not get the VIP seats as they were booked. But the first two seats behind the VIP seats are just as good as you can look out the front, but don't have to pay the premium. Spectacular views, but a rainy day.

We reserved our first class seats on the Golden Pass from Montreux to Interlaken - what a fantastic experience. The views were incredible - especially the brief look at Gstaad. The service was wonderful!

Yes. They wait for the connecting trains.
My wife and I will be travelling through Switzerland on an Interrail Pass (2nd Class) in August. This will be our first train-only holiday. Generally, I am guessing we'll be ok without reservations for most of our journey as we're flexible on times. However, for the Golden Pass route from Zweisimmen to Montreux, I've read that reservations are recommended and required if we want to do the VIP front-of-train experience. Here's my question: How exactly do I make this seat reservation with it knowing I have an Interrail Pass? I've been all over GoldenPass.ch and Interrail's website and can't seem to get a straight answer. Do I just make a reservation in the VIP train car or do I need to pay more for the upgraded seat? GoldenPass.ch is showing that as CHF 8 per person. Is that all I need to reserve or do I need more?
