Overview

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.

While these ultra-modern, ultra-comfortable trains will appeal to many Swiss holiday revelers, others undoubtedly will embrace the romantic, luxurious ride provided by GoldenPass Classic Belle Epoque coaches. These beautiful trains boast unique “wine cellar” coaches that serve an assortment of wines and regional specialties. GoldenPass Classic trains run daily in both directions along the Montreux to Zweisimmen route. Panoramic trains also travel between Interlaken and Lucerne, though often, the route taken is from Lucerne to Montreux, with changes of trains in Interlaken and Zweisimmen or the reverse.

Misspelling of last name on train reservation? I booked a reservation though a travel agent. She spelled my last name wrong on our train reservation. Can I still use this e-ticket and get on the train without any problems?
