GoldenPass: a train from Montreux to Lucerne

The GoldenPass train line connects Montreux with Lucerne via Château-d’Oex, Gstaad and Interlaken. A five-hour trip in panoramic cars across one of the most picturesque Swiss landscapes.

20130320-134306.jpgThe exceptional attraction of the GoldenPass railway line is indeed the countryside. The train connects Montreux, Château-d’Oex, Gstaad, Interlaken and Lucerne with an itinerary through Nature. The GoldenPass crosses the vineyard terraces of Lake Geneva, the pastoral and forestry expanses in Upper Gruyère, Saanenland and in Upper Simmental, holding in store the most captivating views of the Swiss countryside.

The GoldenPass inaugurated the concept of panoramic travel with above-average comfort in its carriages offering wide views of the countryside. On advance booking, travellers can occupy seats in the very front of the first carriage, while the driver sits above them in a small bubble. The journey becomes as captivating as a fairground attraction.
