My family and I will be traveling from Zermatt to Lucerne this June. The route that is quickest is Zermatt to Bern then on to Lucerne. I was wondering would going through Interlaken to Lucerne be more scenic even if it takes 30 minutes longer. Any thoughts would be great thanks.

Hi RandMarg,

Yes, I think it is more scenic for sure. The Interlaken Ost to Lucerne train trip is part of the Golden Pass route and is on what I call a semi-panoramic train as well (a little larger & more windows than normal). It is a great route to do and as you note not much longer.

All trains running this route are the same (noted as Luzern - Interlaken Express) on the timetable.
