We are looking to make a day trip using Golden Pass line from Lucerne to Montreux. It seems it will be around 5.5 hours of journey before we reach Montreux. That seems a lot of seating time. We have read lots of good review about this route so tempted to attempt it. We wanted to know some views from experts if this is advisable. Couple of queries that we have:
(1) Is this trip recommended? We are planning to do Glacier express as well so just thinking if that is too much train time vs out in the field.
(2) Are there any stops worth spending some time like Gstaad?
(3) What are the activities to do at Montreux. We have marked Chillon Castle as the place to see.
(4) If there is any other recommendation for a day trip from Lucerne so that we could consider alternatives.
Thanks much for your help. Appreciate that these are very open ended queries.
On the way back, we can reduce the time by traveling on the normal train and come via Berne.
