I tried to buy the ticket and seat reservation online through - www.goldenpassline.ch/ en/reservation-procedure-for-the-goldenpass-line/, however it can only select seat for reservation, there has no way to buy ticket at the same time. in the above website.

Please advise if this website is only for seat reservation without buying ticket ?

Hi Pekkle and welcome to MySwissAlps!

Yes, that page is just for reservations. You can buy point to point tickets here, unless you are traveling with a rail pass of some sort?

Thanks for advise. I bought a half fare card, so I book the seat first and then buy the ticket at station on that day . Seem the point to point ticket office do not offer half fare rate.

Hi Pekkle,

Yes, that will work just fine. You can buy the ticket at any time once you are in Switzerland at a ticket office (SBB) or a ticket machine. You don't have to wait until just before you board the train (though you can as long as you have made the reservation).

Hi Pekkle,

Have a read through our Golden Pass information page - it discusses the routes, best sides to sit on much more! It really doesn't matter too much on this route but the right side may be slightly nicer...
