Exploring Switzerland Through The Most Picturesque Rail Routes- The Golden Pass lines

A country famous for its chocolates and cheese and the Alps and the lakes- a country favoured by most as an ideal destination for a vacation, Switzerland epitomizes all that a quintessential holiday stands for. The highlight of a Swiss getaway, perhaps, can be the Golden Pass tour- an epic and picturesque train route. Embark on the Golden Pass tour of Switzerland with the stunning city of Lucerne which offers the perfect blend of the traditional and contemporary, with the Dying Lion statue to the Sammlung Rosengart Museum which houses works by Picasso.

This unique train, then, meanders its way around olden castles, chalets and quaint huts across undulated terrains, ascending leisurely to the Brünig Pass, then a hurried descend to Giessbach Falls. In the meantime, ready your cameras for all those memories your mind wouldn’t capture. Further journeying along the shorelines of Lake Thun, the bustling Interlaken welcomes you with the panoramic Jungfrau.

Journeying further south, you can spend a day exploring the many offerings of the charming village of Zweissimen. From Simmental to Saanenmöser Pass to Seebergsee, Zweissimen is a treasure trove for tourists and adventurers. Leaving behind the glamorous region of Gstaad and weaving through vineyards, the Golden Pass tour of Switzerland ends as the train stations at Montreaux offering a view of Lake Geneva. Here, the famous Chillon Castle and lakeside promenades will give your trip an apt end.
