Hi Moderator,

Do we need to book in advance for tickets for the routes below? Or can we buy the tickets in the train station on that day itself?

1) Geneva to Montreux
2) Montreux to Interlaken via Golden Pass Line
3) Interlaken to Lucern
4) Lucern to Zurich / Zurich Airport?

Thanks!

Hello jy,

Tickets can be purchased at any time, either in advance or just before boarding. Swiss trains do not require seat reservations. You only need to book seats if you travel in large groups or in international trains or panoramic trains. The timetable indicates whether reservations are possible, recommended or required. In your case, it would only be recommended if you pick an official Golden Pass train from Montreux to Interlaken.

Enjoy your traveling!

Thanks!

For the Golden pass line, as we are stopping in Interlaken for 3 days before continuing to Lucerne, do we get a one way ticket from Montreux to Lucerne? Or do we have to buy Montreux-Interlaken and Interlaken-Lucerne separately?

I would purchase two separate tickets. You can either buy them both in Montreux or buy the Interlaken - Lucerne ticket in Interlaken.
