Hi,

I'm trying to book the panoramic VIP seats from Interlaken to Montreux via Zweisimmen. For the Zweisimmen to Montreux leg, which seats offer the best views? I'm trying to figure out which seats are the ones where the driver is. Thanks!

Clicking on the .jpg files in this post messes up my computer.
Try and reserve the VIP seats in the very front of the train. There is no other ride like it.
Reservations can be made on line at www.mob.ch

Hello snowee812! Dick's right: it would be best to reserve seats as close to the engineer's seat as possible. It will give you a spectacular view of the railroads ahead. The snapshots you attached don't show these VIP seats though. They're from the train leaving from Zweisimmen at 10.26 am, but only a few trains offer VIP seats. As you can see in your 3d attachment, the train leaving at 14.26 pm does have VIP seats, whereas other trains (including the one you picked) only have regular 1st and 2nd class carriages. If you select this train first, you should be able to book VIP seats instead of regular 1st or 2nd class seats.

At the moment there don't seem to be VIP seats available for online booking at October 6, but that doesn't have to mean that there aren't other ways to reserve them (probably only a few VIP seats can be booked online). You could try to e-mail the railway company through info@goldenpass.ch and see if there are seats left. Getting to a local railway station a few days before departure may help as well; VIP seats may still be availble. If not, a Golden Pass Trip in comfortable 1st class seats is wonderful as well!
