I have done the trip from Montreux to Saanen often, and each time I love it, helped by the gorgeous landscape one traverses, the nice trains, including the historic "Belle Epoque" train and the friendly staff. On many trains you can order drinks and snacks served at your window seat - and you should.

We took the train from chambry to montreux after a long day of hiking. It came right on time. We didn't buy tickets, we didn't know how or where to so we just hopped on. The windows were nice and big and were perfect for sightseeing. Could see the lake and mountains and vineyards on the way down. We got... More

We rode the golden pass panoramic train from montreux to Gstaad and it was the best trip ever! Amazing and breathtaking views of the nature as well as the small villages along the path of the train. You could stop before Gstaad too and explore the areas. It's a must do to see the beautiful Alps as well as the... More

When you go to the website and you think you are buying a ticket, the only cost that they show is for a seat reservation. Then once you purchased the NON REFUNDABLE fee you find out that is only the reservation and that you have to buy a train ticket around 70 Euros 2nd class or 115 Euros first. They... More

The view is really awesome. Having a Swiss pass no other reservation was necessary. Trains also had dining car. But the view from the train is what will charm you to return again and again.

My husband and teenage daughter travelled from Montreux to Zweissimen on the Golden Pass classic train then transferred to a regular train towards Interlaken. The views were spectacular specially the first section of the journey, but could use a little more leg room and luggage area.

My wife and I took the journey from Montreux up to Chateux ODeux (?) where we saw the famous Gruyere cheese being made in the traditional method and then enjoyed a Fondue lunch. The train journey was spectacular and worth the relatively modest (Swiss) cost. We were travelling on a Eurail pass so only had to pay about 35CHF each... More

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
