Hi. I am confused if we have to change trains or not. We are in Zermatt right now and are leaving tomorrow to take the Glacier Express to Chur and then from Chur we take the train to Zurich. Do we have to change trains from Zermatt to Chur or is it one train for the Glacier Express? We have a ticket that shows from Zermatt to Chur and an Eurail Pass. Then we get off in Chur and we have no ticket from Chur to Zurich so we get on the train to Zurich using our Eurail Pass and don't have to pay anything and no reserved seats?? We are in 1st class. We have a 3 month old baby with us so want to know how many times we have to unload and load the stroller and bags. Thanks.

Hi vvelikov and welcome to MySwissAlps!

If you are booked on the Glacier Express train (reservations are mandatory) then there are no changes to make on your trip.

A Eurail pass would fully cover the trip from Chur to Zurich. You can hop on any train you choose without buying any tickets or reservations. Use the Swiss railways timetable here to find your train options.
