Hi, I have some questions about Golden pass line, glacier express,golden tour to mt platius and jungfrauhoch.

1-About Golden pass line, we couldnt learn the real price for this line, we could only make reservation which costs 10 euro but what is the total price and how can we purchase the real tickets.

2-About glacier express, can we buy tickets online for this express, for the specific date and time? Or just reservations? Another question is, can we hop off at any of the stations, see around and then take the next express?

3- About golden tour to mount pilatus, there are some several tour alternatives, which one do you recommend? About the tickets, is it possible to buy online for specific date and time or just buying tickets is enough and no time restrictions?

4- About jungfrauhoh, as we do not want to purchase tickets before we learn the weather conditions on our travelling day, is it possible to buy tickets at the stations in Interlaken or Lauterbrunnen or some other places as we make our minds at the day of travelling ? Will there be risk of not finding seats at that time? Second question is, are the seats numbered and everyone has a specific seat or is it possible to seat any seat we like?

Hi Begumozguler,

Nearly all tickets in Switzerland can be purchased online or on the spot. Reservations can sell out though, so they are best purchased in advance, as soon as you're sure about your travel date and time. However, you only need reservations for the Glacier Express. For the other trips it's not required or just optional. Our pages offer the details on tickets, routes and what to expect:

Be sure to look into rail passes before you buy tickets! With the trips you've planned it's too expensive to buy regular tickets. A pass will save you money: train/ticketspasses.
