Intro

Switzerland’s four language and cultural regions are one of the country’s best-known peculiarities. The journey with the GoldenPass Panoramic train links German-speaking and French-speaking Switzerland, making it possible to experience the change from one culture to another as a gradual process.

This premium panoramic train starts its journey in Zweisimmen, and travels towards Montreux. One picturesque view follows the next, as if the passing landscape had been specially designed for the panoramic journey: cows grazing on lush green meadows, traditional wooden chalets and the tall peaks of the Alps in the background. But the best is saved until last. Shortly before reaching Montreux, you get a fantastic view of glittering Lake Geneva. As the train meanders down the hill at a leisurely pace, you will already start to feel the Mediterranean flair of the Lake Geneva region. The GoldenPass Panoramic is part of the panoramic GoldenPass Line and therefore also part of the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland.
