Montreux stopover between Zermatt and Geneva

Jump to last reply

I was planning to go from Zermatt to Geneva, where I will board my return flight after a week in Switzerland.

I will be on the 4th day of a 4-day Swiss Pass so I was thinking of visiting the castle (Chateau de Chillon) in Montreux.

When I search the time tables on sbb.ch, I see that Zermatt-Geneva Airport and Zermatt-Montreux both go through Visp.

Is it safe to assume that if I just board the train for Geneva, it will go through Visp and stop in Montreux before heading towards Geneva and Geneva Airport?

Or should I make sure and plot out time tables for first going to Montreux and then after my visit, a Montreux-Geneva Airport route?

Also, are there facilities for leaving the luggage at the Montreux train station? If not, this is probably moot (or I may just go to Geneva and check into my hotel first and then go back to Montreux).

Frommers said the best approach is to do a 2-mile walk along the lake to get to the Chateau, rather than take a trolley. So carting luggage doesn't seem viable.
