Hello all,

This will be my first time to Switzerland in October, and I was hoping to get some help in regards to potentially getting the VIP train seats on the Glacier Express. I have already purchased the global eurail pass. But what I can't figure out is how/ where to find reservations, upgrades for the panoramic train cars, as I know they are limited. Any help would be greatly appreciated :) We are open for dates Oct. 10-11.

thank you kindly,

Welcome to MySwissAlps Kate!

The Glacier Express does not have VIP seats, only 1st and 2nd class seats. Some of the Golden Pass trains between Montreux and Zweisimmen do have VIP seats. Please see the below pages for details and booking links:
