Hello Davendra,

Thanks for your question.

Please note that The Swiss Peak Pass must be used in conjunction with a valid 4 or 8-day Swiss Pass for unlimited travel.

Passes must be validated within 6 months of issuing date by a railway official in one of the countries mentioned on the rail pass (station’s desk in Zurich ) who also fills in the passport number.

Passes must be validated prior to boarding 1st train (All parties must be present when validating a Saver pass).

There are direct Golden Pass Line train from Lucerne to Interlaken.

You would have to travel as follows:

- Lucerne to Interlaken - Golden Pass Line train ( i.e. Scenic train) – This sector will be counted on your Swiss Pass.

Reservations are mandatory on high-speed trains, night trains, scenic trains and border crossing trains. However with a Swiss Pass the seat reservation will be offered at discounted fares (Pass holder fares).

The pass seats (i.e. to book a compulsory seat reservation with your rail pass ) can be reserved by clicking here & then feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

In order to book a pass, please visit our website.

Hope this helps!!!
