Create an itinerary including Golden Pass Railway
To see the Swiss Alps without tiring your feet on challenging mountain hikes, take a leisurely trip on Golden Pass Railway, a sightseeing railway line linking Montreux to Lucerne. The panoramic journey, which involves three separate trains, takes visitors from the French-flavored western part of Switzerland to its German-speaking central section. Providing a look at the country's changing landscapes and diverse cultures, the line climbs steep slopes, conquers narrow mountain passes, and weaves its way through the lush scenery of verdant valleys and hillside vineyards. Check the website for accurate departure times, special deals, and service interruptions due to inclement weather. Put Golden Pass Railway on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Montreux route planner.

  • This is an amazing experience that you would be sorry if you miss it. The scenic views and the traditional train made us feel like this is something out of this world. Although you don't always get the classic train, you will always get a breath taking view all along the trip. In fact, I would even recommend getting a first class seat to avoid the crowd in popular seasons. We did, and the experience is totally worth it.
  • It was a fantastic journey from Montreux to Zweisimmen for 2 hours ride. Great panoramic view with mountainous view and lake view. GA travel pass will have free ride. We stop by major towns such Gustaad. Strongly suggest all tourist or locals to try this ride.
