The Experience

Embark on a journey with no transfers from the French speaking village of Montreux that sits along the eastern end of Lake Geneva to the German speaking village of Interlaken set in the peaks of the Bernese Alps. The journey in total is just over three hours and guests have the option to choose between three classes; 2nd, 1st, and Prestige.

How to Book

Tickets can be purchased no later than two months before the scheduled journey. To book, request the journey from Montreux to Interlaken Ost (East).

Prices

*Prices based on the ticket, along with a highly-recommended seat reservation.

  • Second Class: ~73 CHF or $79 USD

  • First Class: ~93 CHF or $100 USD

  • Prestige Class: ~128 CHF or $138 USD

Verdict: Though, it's around $60 more than the lowest ticket point in second class, the Prestige class does offer great amenities for a once-in-a-lifetime experience with fully panoramic windows and comfy rotating seats. So we would choose the Prestige Class experience.
