Experience an unforgettable journey through Switzerland!

The GoldenPass Line is one of the most picturesque in Switzerland. It links the Lake Lucerne, which is the historic heart of Switzerland, to the Vaud Riviera. It has direct connections to both Geneva and Zurich airports.

The Luzern-Interlaken Express from Lucerne to Interlaken is part of the GoldenPass Line and connects the two beautiful cities Lucerne and Interlaken. Experience a unique journey over the Mount Brünig and be astonished by the lakes, the picturesque villages and all that surrounded by mountains.
