GoldenPass route in the direction of Montreux toward Lucerne

Planning to purchase Eurail Select 2 country pass, flying into Paris and then traveling into Switzerland with the ultimate goal of visiting family in Zurich. Plan to travel from Paris to Geneva. Spend the night in Geneva, and the next day travel Geneva to Montreux.,.Stop in Montreux for a bit, but then hope to get to Lucerne the same day, hopefully via a GoldenPass route or train.

I cannot find much information on the Montreux to Lucerne route. Have tried to break it into segments but can't find Montreux to Zweissman, Zweissman to Lucerne, etc.

    Hi Karen,

    I show that breaking up your search should do the trick for pulling up the GoldenPass schedules (one search from Montreux to Zweisimmen, another search from Zweisimmen to Interlaken, and then another search from Interlaken to Lucerne).

    However, of the trains comprising of the GoldenPass route, reservations would only be recommended on the segment from Montreux to Zweisimmen. It really wouldn't be necessary to purchase reservations for the other segments. From Zweisimmen to Interlaken and Interlaken to Lucerne, the rail pass is all you would need to board.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from Montreux to Zweisimmen by searching only this segment on our homepage (, checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Select Pass 2 Countries’).

    The GoldenPass trains can only be reserved once within 90 days of an intended departure date. If your intended travel happens to fall outside of this time frame, you would just enter a date within the next 90 days to get an idea of the reservation costs and schedules in the meantime. If you still have difficulty accessing these reservation costs/schedules, you would have to call us. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM CT Monday to Friday and 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM CT on Saturdays.
