We would like to cover Golden pass route from Zweisimmen to Montreux and then cover Geneva cruise from Montreux for about two hours on the way also cover Chillion castle on the way (if possible).

After the cruise we would like to explore Geneva during the day and return back to interlaken OST by late evening.

I would like to know which Cruise route would be best to cover for for two hours , I had a look at the cruise map but I am unsure which Cruise location we should get off so that we can reach Geneva in the shortest possible time so that it can leave us couple of hours to explore Geneva.

Appreciate if could assist/suggest with above itenary.

HI Pape,

For boat trips on Lake Geneva, from Montreux to Geneva you will have to connect in Lausanne and you don't have a lot of time to do everything you want in one day from Interlaken.

I would suggest taking the train or boat from Montreux to Chillon Castle (less than 20 minutes) and then taking a boat to Lausanne before continuing on by train if you want to see Geneva. I'm not sure I would bother trying to get to Geneva. Between the Golden Pass train route, Montreux, Lausanne and Chillon Castle there is a lot to see and do in one day.

Use the SBB timetable here to plan out your trips. You'll have to get an early start from Interlaken.

You can find more information on Lake Geneva boat tours here as well as a link to the schedule on their website.
