Yes, it is covered by the Swiss Travel Pass.

You can read about the Golden Pass route here, and also make reservations online here. Reservations are not required but the train can get busy so I might recommend reservations.

Dear Lucas.

As you advise about the reservation in Golden Pass Train, can you advise the procedure of the reservation , i am having Swiss Travel Pass already.

Is this is the link from which i can make reservation?

Hi Ankur,

That link gets you the reservation for the Zweisimmen to Montreux leg, which is the leg where reservations are recommended (not required). You don't need reservations for the rest of the trip.

Hi Ankur,

Yes, you can reserve seats between Zweisimmen and Montreux through the link mentioned above. You can travel from Lucerne to Montreux and return in one day, although it will be a long day. You can travel back using the quicker route via Lausanne and Bern: that will save some time. This route is displayed in the timetable by default if you don't enter Zweisimmen, Gstaad and/or Interlaken as via-stations. Yes, a 2 hour visit to Montreux is doable. It all depends on how late you want to get back to Lucerne.
