Hi Robert -<<"Is it easier to connect to Zermatt throughBrig or through Visp. While researching online is appeared theconnection is simpler through Visp.">>
Brig and Visp are very close to one another. Look at a map:
I'd pick whatever routing looks best from the timetable:
<<"How exactly do you use theSwiss Pass. Do you need to make a reservation on the train you want, ordo you just board the train with your pass?">>
Unless you have selected a special train with a named route (such as the Glacier Express) , you will not need reservations. Take any train and show your pass when the conductor checks tickets.
On occasion, you may be asked to show an ID, such as your passport. Make sure you sign the pass as required. If you have a pass that starts a clock once you begin to use it, or has certain days that are "counted" it may be more complex. You may have to enter a start date, etc. Arno and Annika can help with those fine details.
What I have described in the general case works easily. Get on the train and show the pass as needed.
