The GoldenPass Line or MOB

Whether you are in Montreux Switzerland for the Montreux Jazz Festival or to enjoy the fantastic skiing conditions, traveling on the GoldenPass Line, also known as the MOB, is an experience you do not want to miss.  While there are several ways to travel in Switzerland, the Swiss panoramic trains are the best way to see the beautiful countryside and avoid the stress of trying to navigate the roads in a foreign country. You begin your journey in the Mediterranean region of Montreux climbing above Lake Geneva and passing through the Jaman Tunnel. Enjoy fantastic views of the vineyards above Montreux and the lush green valleys along the way.  Once you pass through the Jaman Tunnel, you will be able to see the Swiss Alps more clearly and you will pass by clear mountain streams and by thick alpine forests.  The train stops in several villages along the route where you can explore the Swiss countryside and experience authentic Swiss culture and cuisine.

The GoldenPass Panoramic trains offer unparalleled panoramic views of the Swiss Alps and the countryside as you travel from Montreux to Zweisimmen.  Both first and second class sections offers the most modern comforts for passengers.  One train even has a special VIP section in the very front where passengers can enjoy the same view as the driver.  For a more historical and romantic trip, ride the GoldenPass Classic.  The coaches are based on the Golden Mountain Pullman Express from the 1930s, which was an Orient Express style train.  These trains have a warm, inviting and friendly atmosphere. There is even a wine cellar in one coach where you can sample regional wines.  Travel back in time in a train that is reproduced in the Belle Époque style and enjoy the great views of the villages and countryside from Montreux to Zweisimmen.

The Chocolate Train may be the most popular, and most enjoyable, of all the trains on the GoldenPass Line.  The train runs from Montreux to Gruyères where you will learn how cheese is made at the cheese dairy then it is on to Broc where you will tour the Cailler factor and experience their fine chocolate first hand.  Information about the Chocolate Train is available at most hotels in Montreux.
