We will be traveling from Zermatt to Zurich airport and had thought about taking the Golden Pass, but wondered if there is another alternative to see more of the landscape with the construction. We are taken Glacier Express to Zermatt from Zurich.

Zermatt to Zurich via the full Golden Pass Line ( ldenpass) which runs between Montreux and Luzern will take you over 9 hours.

Going via Kandersteg, Intelaken Ost, Meringen and Luzern covers a fair part of the Golden Pass Line route but still takes over 7 hours.

By comparison the fastest route offered by the SBB Timetable ( metable) is 3 hours 21 mins.

Hi Phlash -

By the way, although Rockoyster as given you the link for the SBB/CFF timetable, we usually recommend this site to get instructions on some of the subtleties: metable

Useful when you are trying to understand how to set up or test alternate routings.
