Tomorrow - Round trip train ticket from Montreux to Milan

Hi all,

We're in Montreux and run out of things to do. We found few posts on train to Milan and is wondering how much the round trip train cost? We have 1/2 fare cards. Also, will we be able to buy train tickets for the entire trip at Montreux station

Yes, you can buy the entire ticket at the Montreux station. Your half fare card would be good as far as the Swiss border which should be Domodossola. It looks like your fare in 2nd class using the 1/2 fare card would be 42 CHF and 56 CHF in 1st for the round trip. It will take about 4 hours.

However, have you been to Zermatt? it's just over 2.5 hours from Montreux! The price is about the same with the 1/2 fare car. There's plenty to do there for a day particularly if the weather is good.

Hope this helps.

Hi duchoa204,

hmmm, I wonder what you've seen and done while in Montreux and how many days you have?? In any case, here are some other things you can do that are closer than Milan and Zermatt:

Explore the old town of Montreux, up on the hills above the lake

Explore the old town of Vevey

Explore the vineyards at Chardonne, above Vevey

Walk from Lutry to Epesses or Cully or Rivaz through the vineyards

Explore the lovely town of Morges

Walk from Morges to Lausanne along the lake

Explore the beautiful village of Yvoire in France

Take the Golden Pass train route to Gstaad and explore the town, take a walk from the peak of the Wispile to the Lauenensee

Go to Gruyeres and explore the castle and the dairy

Go to Chateau d'Oex or Rougemont, also along the Golden Pass route

Walk the Narcissus Path in the hills above the lake

Hope you find something fun!

Thanks for your inputs. We ended up spending a day at Domodossola (instead of Milan as we couldn't get ticket to see the Last Super painting). Domodossola is nice and relative easy trip from Montreux
