The Golden Pass line is one of the most picturesque in Switzerland. Split into three
distinct sections, the ever-changing scenery truly
reflects Switzerland’s diversity. From Lucerne,
the train passes picturesque villages and lakes
before climbing over the Brünig Pass and down

Zweisimmen, which first follows the banks of
Lake Thun before heading into the green Alpine
pastures of the Simmental. Traditional villages
and flowering meadows pass by before the train
reaches Zweisimmen, where passengers need to
change to a different gauge train. Through forests
and mountain villages the journey continues,
passing through a tunnel to emerge among the
vineyards around Lake Geneva. Overnight in
Montreux at the Hotel Helvetie or similar. (B)
