GoldenPass Belle Époque

From Montreux to Zweisimmen

A dream journey to the luxuries of the 1930s, which saw the first metre gauge deluxe train: the „Golden Mountain Pullman Express“, running between Montreux and Zweisimmen. This Belle Époque train, recreated in the style of the Orient Express, really sets the hearts of guests ablaze during the enjoyable ride in the lush, upholstered chairs.

The GoldenPass Belle Époque is more than just a train. The moment guests step in they feel like stepping back in time: The coaches are panelled in precious wood and adorned with gold-plated decorations. In softly upholstered seats, travellers enjoy the ride between Montreux and Zweisimmen in the style of the Orient Express. The GoldenPass Belle Époque rolls through unique hillscapes down towards Lake Geneva and passes the German-French language border on its way.
