Take in the lake views, an idyllic countryside landscape and three high mountain passes

Lucerne - Interlaken - Montreux

This extraordinary journey has three sections, with a panoramic view of the breathtaking scenery over three different passes. The first section is in the panoramic carriages of the Luzern-Interlaken Express, with its distinctive red livery. The train departs from historic Lucerne and travels through the scenic countryside, including the fabulous Brünig Pass, before reaching Interlaken in around 2 hours.

The GoldenPass Line train then takes you from Interlaken to Zweisimmen via the beautiful lakeside village of Spiez in a little over an hour. The final leg is a leisurely 2 hour journey which passes through the beautiful Simmen Valley, then heads up into the mountains and the glamorous alpine resort of Gstaad, before a stunning descent through Les Avants to Lake Geneva and Montreux.

Onboard catering facilities are provided, with a dining car between Lucerne and Interlaken and a railbar service between Zweisimmen and Montreux.
