Hi Sue,

Yes, part of the route. The Golden Pass route is in three sections:

  • Luzern-Interlaken
  • Interlaken-Zweisimmen
  • Zweisimmen-Montreux

The trains with panoramic windows that extend into the roof only run on the Zweisimmen-Montreux sector, but the trains between Luzern and Interlaken (called the Luzern-Interlaken Express) have larger-than-normal windows.

All the trains that run between Luzern and Interlaken (and vice versa) travel along the Golden Pass route, so it doesn't matter which train you catch, and you don't need to make a reservation.

By the way, I presume you are travelling on 21 September (you wrote 21 July).

Yes, 21/9! My mistake! Thanks so much! I'm also wondering from interlaken or Luzern , are there anymore scenic train rides I can take? But I can't end else where as those 2 cities are my bases.

Hi Sueycr,

From Lucerne or Interlaken you could do the whole Golden Pass route to Montreux if you like. From Lucerne you could also take the Gotthard Panorama Express to Lugano.
