Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am going to travel from Hong Kong to Swiss in June and planned routes already. Some of them are scenic trains and heard that needs to make seat reservation in advance. By the way, I have bought a Swiss Pass already in HK but cannot found a reservation link.

I have planned the following scenic trains:

Bernina Express: from Chur to Tirano, then to Lugano

William Tell Express: from Lugano to Luzern (Lucerne)

Interlaken Express: from Luzern (Lucerne) to Interlaken Ost

Golden Pass: Interlaken Ost to Montreux

Mont Blanc Express: Montreux to Zermatt

Glacier Express: Zermatt to Chur

Many thanks for your assistance.

Irene

Hi Arno,

Thank you for your responce.

I found my first route from Chur to Tirano, then to Lugano (Bernina) like the time is 8:32 am at 4 June is reservation compulsory. Then direct to the seat reservation, it shows that “Seat reservation not possible”. All the trains from Chur to Tirano on the same day also same. What is it mean? Was it full already?

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi Irene,

That train is indeed the Bernina Express and it does require reservations. I just tried the link under "More on other websites" on myswissalps.com/ berninaexpress/ tickets. That one seems to work fine for June 4. Can you try that option?
