normal sbb train or golden pass?

in december, plan to do the golden pass lucerne-interlaken ost, plus interlaken ost - montreux.

will it worth the extra money or all we can see maybe just snow covered montains and fields?

golden pass is 3 times more with half fare card. thanks

First - make sure when you are looking at schedules that the train Interlaken > Montreux goes via "Zweisimmen" this is the Golden Pass Route (rather than the faster route via Spiez > Visp, or via Bern >Lausanne).

Then... read the following post from yesterday.

Hope this helps you decide.

No it isn't. Luzern to Montreux via the Golden Pass line is 36.50 CHF; via the fast line it's 34 CHF. That's only a very small difference.

The Golden Pass Panoramic trains are no more expensive than the normal trains over the same route.
