Breathtaking journey into the high altitudes. Worth it for the journey alone. Quaint old railway ends at a well themed grotto. Free face painting, great views and of course Santa (who was warm hearted and welcoming) Everyone happy!

We very much enjoyed this journey through the beautiful scenery between Montreux and Zweisimmen and back. It is a different world, and the picturesque farms and villages were beautiful. We had a lovely lunch in Zweisimmen and enjoyed the return trip too!

If you take this train ride on a clear day you can enjoy spectacular views of the Lake of Geneva and the Alpes. They offer classic coaches and on-board service. A great way to travel!

So beautiful, so scenic. When life gets to be "too much," I close my eyes and think about the lovely ride through the hills and beside the lake, and I'm back in Switzerland. (Sure wish I were!)

The line from Montreux , first few kilometers are beautiful, best way to see it, make booking early so you get to seat in the VIP seat! fare inexpensive, service are great with trolley service meal /drinks, The rest of the journey to Zweisimmen is quite nice, especially in Autumn and winter. Advance booking, especially to the VIP seat

We rode on the scenic line from Lucerne, stopping at Interlaken to go to Wengen in the Alps. It was truly a memorable run. Train is clean and smooth on the tracks. Unlike American trains, cars are not marred by graffiti. The Golden Pass ticket is a bargain. Buy in advance. Train offers dining and beverage service.

When we boarded the train was already half full. There was no place to take pictures. Even the first class cabins were quite full. The scenery was beautiful but nothing that you can't see from any ordinary train passing through the Swiss countryside. Save your time and money and avoid this train.

We took two routes, one from Lucern to Interlaken and the other from Interlaken to Montreux. It is very relaxing with non stop scenery. We are so busy enjoying it that makes the journey seem very short. I was lucky to have booked the seats in the front. We sit there as if we are driving the train. It is... More

We took the GPL from Zweisimmen to Montreux and it was simply incredible! Picture this you are looking at magnificent snow capped mountains, lush green pastures, cows grazing etc which is like flipping pages of a landscape calendar and suddenly you see this massive water body and a cute township nestled on its side and it feels like you have...

This was the best day of a terrific Switzerland vacation. We took the GoldenPass from Luzern to Montreux, then continued to Lausanne. The trains have panoramic windows and the views are spectacular. (The Alps really are dotted with chalets!) The ride is smooth as silk. We splurged on first-class seats and it was worth it, because the first class cars... More
