Rail travel within Switzerland and to Lake Como

Jump to last reply

Our flight arrives in Zurich this summer from the States and then we will travel down to Chateau d'Oex for 6 days. We are considering a stop in Lucerne for lunch and a walk about town .... I know it is a bit out of the way and we will be tired BUT we were planning originally to stay in Lucerne and after all of the research I am really curious to see it.

We are planning to do a lot of cycling in Switzerland and currently I am not planning to visit the Bernese Oberland (I have been there before - though my husband has not).

We will be traveling from Chateau d'Oex to Lake Como.

The most efficient route seems to be from Chateau d'Oex to Montreaux to Milan (where we will probably pick up a car and drive to Lake Como because it is Sunday and the rental agencies in Como are closed).

However I know we are missing a lot of Switzerland with our plan to headquarter in Chateau d'Oex, so I am wondering if it is worth looking for a rail experience that would be more scenic but perhaps a longer journey to get us to Como (if we don't end up in Milan that is ok - we can pick up a car on Monday or Tuesday - I believe we will use ferries more than the car to get around but we do want to have one for doing some exploring).

I would also welcome suggestions for our travel from Zurich (and possibly Lucerne) to Chateau d'Oex. It looks like the Goldenpass might be an option for us.

Thanks in advance for any help!
