We are flying into Zurich in June and heading directly to Montreux. We plan on purchasing the half fare card to cover this portion of the trip. After a few days in Montreux, we will be heading south out of Switzerland (Italy/France) returning back to Montreux to take the train to Lauterbrunnen. We will be in Lauterbrunnen for a week. It looks like the Berner Oberland regional pass along with the half fare discount card is our best option. Can I buy that regional pass at the Montreux train station? It looks like the Golden Pass train leaves for Zweisimmen every 2 hrs with the regular train in between. Is it worth trying to get on the Golden Pass train? If it's typically overcrowded, I'd rather take the regular train. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
