Hello,

I have a quick question. We will be traveling from Montreux to Interlaken West on April, 11. I booked VIP seats on a 9:44 golden pass train from Montreux, arriving to Zweisimmen at 11:32. Next train to Interlaken West is leaving Zweisimmen at 11:38. Is this enough time to change trains? We only have 6 minutes.

Thank you for advice.

Hello, and a quick answer.....

Zweisimmen have a very small railway station. The most travellers on the train from Montreux change tot the train to Interlaken. When the Golden Pass train is on time, you have enough time to change trains. When posible, sit on the left site of this train (train drive in same direction from Zweisimmen) you have very nice looks on the lake Thun (after Spiez).

Greetings from the Netherlands, Brahms

Hi Jkaplinsky,

Yes, that is no problem (it is a very small station) and Swiss Railways knows that when it builds connection times. They will almost certainly also hold the train as many people wil be connecting (if the train is running behind that day).
