Hello,

I plan on using the golden pass to travel to interlaken from Montreux on July 15th. I was unsure if I need to make a reservation because I will have a travel pass. I was looking into the reservations and for July 15th, the golden pass reservation website said there were no trains. Did I miss something or is there really no trains available that day?

From Interlaken I plan to stay the night in Lauterbrunnen. Let me know if there is any advice on this route.

Hi jrmaronek,

Reservations are not required on that route but recommended for the 1st section only (between Montreux and Zweisimmen) and I can find reservations on that section. I would reserve that section only. For the train after Zweisimmen you can just hop on and find a seat.

There is only one route to Lauterbrunnen from Interlaken. you can search the options on the Swiss railways timetable:https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable

The 'Goldenpass' is a brand name invented for tourists. The true 'Golden Pass' is only the mountain section between Montreux and Chateau d'Oex, on the MOB railway route.

Interlaken - Luzern is not truly the GoldenPass. It is a separate railway called the Brünig Pass. It used to be part of Swiss Federal Railways but is now run by a joint operation known as Zentralbahn.

The trains on the line are now dubbed Luzern Interlaken Express. They have plenty of seats and no reservation is required

I understand the point you are trying to make, but the whole route Luzern to Montreux is marketed as the Golden Pass.

Personally, I just think it creates unnecessary confusion to say that the Interlaken-Luzern sector is not truly the Golden Pass route.
