GoldenPass Line
One of the brightest stars in Switzerland’s rail network, the GoldenPass line stretches nearly 150 miles from Lucerne to Lake Geneva. Travelers enjoy unforgettable views of so many of Switzerland’s highlights from Montreux to Zweisimmen as they relax aboard panoramic trains.

Montreux > Zweisimmen > Interlaken > Brünig Pass > Lucerne

  • GoldenPass Line is the world’s first panoramic train put into service between Montreux and Zweisimmen. It remains the only line in Switzerland offering VIP seating at the front of the train giving a driver’s eye view.
  • These ultra-modern trains are the only ones to give the traveller the unique sensation of being totally at one with the “grandeur” of the unfolding landscape.
  • Leaving Montreux, the line rises above Lake Geneva allowing a full view of the magnificent landscape of the Lake Region as it spreads out. At Jaman, it plunges through a tunnel into the mountains, changing valleys and heading for the world famous resorts of Châteaux d’Oex and Gstaad. The line attains its culminating point (1,274m/4180ft) before reaching Zweisimmen, from where the traveller can continue the trip with the GoldenPass Panoramic towards Interlaken and Lucerne.
