I will be reaching swizerland in first week of May and my base for 6 days is Lucerne.

One day I plan to take the Golden pass route and go to Montreux and Gstad and Glacier 3000

Going through all the threads i am quite confused

Cansomeone kindly help me with the exact route

Also once I reach montreux kindly share what all i can do in that city

Looking forward for valuable inputs from this wonderful Forum.

Hi Poulami,

So from Lucerne, you follow the Golden Pass until Gstaad. Lucerne - Interlaken - Zweisimmen - Gstaad. Then you take a post bus to Col Du Pillon where you take the cable car up to Glacier 3000. Read about my recent trip there here.

There are quite a few changes on this route and to find the schedule that incorporates the Golden Pass is tricky. It will be default take you on faster trains. You want to travel from Luzern to Interlaken Ost on the Luzern - Interlaken Express. Then from Interlaken Ost to Zweisimmen and then to Gstadd where you take a bus to Glacier 3000 (bus stop is Col du Pillon). Then after you need to back track to Gstaad and train to Montreux
