We did this after the Bernina and glacier so was not sure what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. This is a much shorter line but surrounded by beautiful landscapes of mountains and valleys. It was also less crowded than than the Glacier or Bernina. This is a must do item if you get a chance

I was taking the journey when part of a tour group. As far as I am concerned, there was not a whole lot to see. There were mustard fields, the Alps, and that's about it. Seating is comfortable and legroom was adequate. Overall, the trip is just average; nothing really special, and it ended up being bland. I suppose you... More

We booked a train ride from Montreux to Gstaad to take in the Alps and scenery. We weren't disappointed it is truly an experience that you need to do when you head to these parts. The mountains, snow, wooden lodges and the whole experience make it perfect. It's a good hour and an half journey from Montreux up to Gstaad... More

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.
