I am bringing a group of 26 in May to Switzerland and they are telling me that the Golden Pass Train route from Lucerne to Zermatt is closed the day we are coming?

Just curious on when it will reopen as we are very disappointed that we will not be on this train.

The route is open and operating, but not for groups. This is the official MOB line:

Between 2018 and 2022, important adjustments in the infrastructure and rolling stock of the Montreux-Berner Oberland-Bahn (MOB) are carried out

  • Construction side Montbovon–Château-d’Oex: Limitations from 19 March until 01 June 2018. There are substitute buses
  • During the construction period individual travellers cannot make any reservations between Zweisimmen and Montreux
  • Groups can only travel between Zweisimmen and Château-d'Oex. The route from Château-d'Oex to Montreux will be closed for group travel during the conversion period

Maybe you could travel as 26 individuals?
