GoldenPass Line

From Lucerne to Montreux

8 lakes – 6 cantons – 3 mountain passes – 2 language regions: The GoldenPass Line spans Switzerland from Lake Lucerne to the vineyards on the shores of Lake Geneva.

The modern Luzern-Interlaken Express serviced by Zentralbahn takes travellers along the Lakes Alpnach, Sarnen and Lungern to the Brünig mountain pass and down on the other side to Meiringen.

The journey goes on via Lake Brienz to Interlaken. After changing trains, guests continue the trip aboard the BLS regional express train, first along Lake Thun and then through Simmental to Zweisimmen.

From there, passengers travel in style via Gstaad to Montreux at Lake Geneva. Aboard the MOB Panoramic, the scenic view can be savoured through the overhight panoramic windows or even from a VIP seat. For railway nostalgia enthusiasts, the MOB Belle Epoque is the perfect choice: this is a replica of the elegant Belle-Époque trains.

The spectacular railway adventure in three different trains can be embarked on from Western or Central Switzerland.
