We travelled only a part of tour or from Interlaken to Montreux. The train passes through a very scenic beauty. It's worth the journey. You can plan while visiting the places on route . Ensure you have Swiss pass or proper tickets Reservations not necessary

From Luzern to Interlaken sit on the right side of the train for better views. I read somewhere that left is good but I feel right is even better if you want to enjoy views of the lake. As such both are nice and you’ll...More
