The Panoramic-Express is a part of the famous Golden Pass Line from Montreux to Lucerne. The golden-colored, elegant trains take passengers from the banks of Lake Geneva via the famous resort town of Gstaad to Interlaken in the Bernese Oberland.
Montreux, located on Lake Geneva and protected by 2,000-meter-high mountain peaks, is famous for its mild climate and subtropical vegetation. This is where the Panoramic-Express starts. The Express's streamlined golden cars on narrow-gauge tracks offer superb views and ride uphill via Gstaad to Zweisimmen.
The continuation of the journey on normal gauge rails requires a change of trains. To facilitate this change, the trains from Montreux and Interlaken stop at the same platform. The journey continues through the Simmen Valley (Simmental), past richly decorated, characteristic farmhouses and through the pristine mountain world to Lake Thun and to the well-known resort town of Interlaken in the Bernese Oberland.
