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

Beautiful views all the way during the ride. It is a must if you are around that area for a couple of days.

Took the golden pass train from Montreux to Zwissenmen the scenery is breathtakingly beautiful. We stopped off at the balloon festival at Chateau-D-Lex which was great, the balloons looked great you can get rear close. Carried on journey to Zwiesserman the scenery was fantastic, so much snow.

We did this after the Bernina and glacier so was not sure what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. This is a much shorter line but surrounded by beautiful landscapes of mountains and valleys. It was also less crowded than than the Glacier or Bernina. This is a must do item if you get a chance

I was taking the journey when part of a tour group. As far as I am concerned, there was not a whole lot to see. There were mustard fields, the Alps, and that's about it. Seating is comfortable and legroom was adequate. Overall, the trip is just average; nothing really special, and it ended up being bland. I suppose you... More

We booked a train ride from Montreux to Gstaad to take in the Alps and scenery. We weren't disappointed it is truly an experience that you need to do when you head to these parts. The mountains, snow, wooden lodges and the whole experience make it perfect. It's a good hour and an half journey from Montreux up to Gstaad... More
