This is one of the most beautiful train ride in Switzerland. It starts from Montreux and winds its way through the beautiful mountains to Interlaken and beyond. The train has large windows and glass panels on the roof for great views. Its a bit slow...More

Too long but indeed very scenic and beautiful. Switzerland is all about nature and it's beauty and there is nothing better than train travel and the golden pass line is just like a cherry on the icing

The Golden Pass has an opportunity to pay for reserved seats in the front train and for a little more money, you can have the front row seat. The conductor is in a dome above you so with the front row seats, there is nothing...More

The scenery along this train route has to be seen to be believed. Try to imagine a train going through a mix of Yosemite national park and Lake Tahoe, and you have an idea what it's like. It's also quite stunning to watch how steep...More

Swiss rail pass and use of all the trains- gold or otherwise was fantastic. It gave us entrance to numerous attraction, boat rides, and bus rides. It was easy. No lines to wait in. Trains in second class are comfortable. We bought it on line...More

Questions & Answers
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?
