Hi all,

My family and I will be visiting Montreux and Paris this coming June.

May I know what is the best train route (in terms of distance and price) to reach Paris from Montreux?

Should I depart from Montreux to Paris or is there a better option?

Do I need to buy train tickets online or getting them at the station is okay too?

I seek your kind advice, thank you!

Hi if you go onto, put in your departure point and destination and the date it will give you all the options, there are plenty depending on travel date. It also gives you the prices and travel time, I always find it a useful site you can buy the tickets as well but check out the Swiss leg separately as you might better with a pass depending what else you are doing,

cheers Ian

Hi SL90 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

I would buy the ticket in advance. International tickets get higher in price the closer to the travel date.

You can certainly take a train from Montreux to Paris if that is where you are starting from. Changes in Lausanne and/or Geneva are common.

Use the Swiss railways timetable to plan out the trips and see schedules. To buy tickets from Switzerland to Paris you can find online retailers here.
