I have Swiss Travel Pass in first class for 8 days. I wanted to know is Glacier express from Brig to Chur would be free on this pass.

i just read that it is the most beautiful train hence, thought of taking this and then going fromChur to Lipuzern , rather than directly from InterlKen to Luzern.

Is it a right decision. I wanted to do Willhelm Tell Express on one day out of 4 days in Luzern. However, I am unable to taken the reservation, I am Worried is it that all trains are booked. I am trying for anyway between 10th to 13th June.

thanks fr all your help.

Hi Saumya12,

The Glacier Express is free, just like all other trains. Please see the map. You do need seat reservations for this train.

The Wilhelm Tell Express can't be booked online at the moment. I don't know why that is, but you'll have to book it in Switzerland if they don't solve that before you travel. But you don't have to book it at all, it's just an option if you want the tourist package. You can board the same boat and train without reservations. Please see wilhelmtellexpress.
