The Golden Pass Line threads a wonderful path through the heart of central Switzerland between Lake Lucerne and Lake Geneva.
It links the popular holiday resorts of Lucerne and Interlaken with Montreux year round.
Three railway companies ensure that passengers reach their destination.
In the past, passengers had to change trains several times, but today they can travel the route comfortably with just one change in Interlaken.
Climb aboard and enjoy a unique landscape cinema in front of your panoramic window on the Lucerne-Interlaken Express and the new Golden Pass Express trains.
