Hi Ankur,

a. If you want to travel by Golden Pass, you need to travel via Interlaken and Zweisimmen as explained at myswissalps.com/golden pass/gettingthere. The route you've mentioned here via Lausanne is the quicker option that's displayed by default by most timetables, but it's not the Golden Pass route.

b. I'm not sure why you can't see a return train on that website. Did you try a whole new search for your train back? As suggested in your other topic, you can also travel back via Lausanne/Bern. No reservations are required at all for this route. You can just hop on with your Swiss Travel Pass.

c. As explained in your previous topic, you don't need reservations for the Golden Pass at all. Your Swiss Travel Pass is sufficient to just board and go. This goes for both the Golden Pass route as well as the alternative via Lausanne/Bern. The only section where reservations are recommended (but not even required) is Zweisimmen-Montreux. If you're looking for reservations at either website, please make sure this is the exact leg you're entering, not the whole stretch from Lucerne to Montreux. And did you try Happyrail, as listed at our Golden Pass seat reservation page?

Yes, you can make reservations at any Swiss rail station office if you want to wait until you are there, though it is possible it could be full.
