    Hi – I want to book a point-to-point ticket for the Golden Pass train from Montreux to Zweisimmen and I see the price of ticket (on as 8 CHF. Am I reading it correct? Is that the full and complete price of the journey? Or will I need to pay more at the station?

    Hi rikeshdesai, welcome!

    That sounds like the price of just a seat reservation. Will you be using a rail pass? Which one?

    hey Arno – thanks for your warm welcome here! 🙂 and so glad for your quick reply. And you are absolutely right about the reservation thing.

    I didnt buy the Swiss railpass since I am thinking only to do the Golden train journey from Montreux to Lucern (5-6 hours) and then head to Zurich and spend two days in that city.

    I reach Montreux from Geneva in the morning.

    I actually did a bit of digging and found what I wanted 🙂

    Hi rikeshdesai,

    Glad you found it! The alternative way is to use the timetable for all of Switzerland to find prices for any train, not just the Golden Pass line. Please see timetable for how it works. A single trip Montreux to Lucerne, via the Golden Pass line, costs CHF 75.

    You don’t need seat reservations: goldenpass/tickets.
