Hello all,

I've planned to travel to Switzerland during 4th - 9th Nov. I researched a few swiss travel websites but it seems like in the month of Nov, there's not much scenic trains or boats operating. Is this information correct?

I'm looking at these few tourist attractions, can experts advise what's the best route for sightseeing? If there's any scenic trains/boats operating during the Nov period?

From Brig to Zermatt -> to see Matterhorn
From Brig to Interlaken to Jungfrau/Lauterbrunnen -> to visit Top of europe
From Lausanne to Vevey -> to visit Chillon Castle
From Lausanne to Broc -> to visit Callier Chocolate factory

Many Thanks

Rgds,
Lezzo

Hi Lezzo. November is low season indeed and quite some cable cars and boats won't be operating. Your plans are no problem though: Brig-Zermatt-Gornergrat is accessible all year long, just as the Jungfraujoch. You can visit the Chillon castle by train to Montreux, instead of by boat. The Chocolate Train to Broc doesn't run in November, but the factory can be visited by regular public transportation. Some famous scenic trains such as the Glacier Express and Golden Pass also run throughout the year.

I hope this provides some reassurance!

Thanks Arno. I'll try to search for the mentioned scenic trains ride for Nov period.

Just another query: I have purchased Swiss pass 2-for-1 promo. While traveling between long rides (e.g from Brig to Interlaken / Brig to Lausanne / Lausanne to Broc) , is it necessary or is there seat reservation required?

Rgds.

Hi lezzo. Your Swiss Pass covers nearly all rides (please review the downloadable validity map at the Swiss pass page) and in most cases, additional seat reservations aren't necessary. It's only required for some special scenic trains (such as the Chocolate Train to Broc). Here's how to find out whether you need a seat reservation.
