Genève / Geneva to Interlaken by train

There are no direct trains from Geneva to Interlaken, but there are now two journey options available that involve having to make only one connection between trains.
So travellers can choose a fast option, which has some scenic highlights, or to ride one of Switzerland's most beautiful railways.
Though what both routes share s the journey by the shore of Lake Thun south of Spiez and on to Interlaken.

The first trains on both options commence their journeys at Geneve-Aeroport station - it takes the trains around 5 mins to travel from there to the main station in Geneve.

So if you'll be heading to the resorts in the Bernese-Oberland, the plus of choosing Geneve as your gateway to Switzerland over Basel, is that plane to train interchange.
Basel has direct trains to Interlaken, but the transfer from its airport is by bus.
