Hi, we are traveling on the Interlaken-Luzern express (starting at Interlaken). Understood that seat reservations are not necessary but we reserved anyways since the SBB office suggested that it's best to do so since we are traveling on a Sunday.

Question: I have read that it's best to sit on the right side of the train. The seat numbers we have are 321, 323, 324. I am not able to find the seating map anywhere. Can someone please let me know which side of the train these are on, and whether they are facing the direction of the train travel or backwards?

Thank you so much!

Anna

Hi Familiadehon,

Welcome to MySwissAlps.

Unfortunately, I can't tell you from your seat numbers which side of the train you'll be sitting on or whether you'll be facing the direction of travel or not. But one thing's for sure your seats are guaranteed and you'll be seated together. If the train is not full, you're free to change your seating to face the direction of travel or sit on the right side.

You can find useful information about seat reservations here: www.myswissalps.com/train/reservations

Regards,

Anna

My thoughts/opinions

1) The loading of the trains isn't greatly different on a Sunday to other days so I don't think a reservation was truly necessary. The trains have many coaches giving a large overall number of seats

2) With reservations being rarely needed on Swiss trains I doubt the company has bothered to produce a seat map for a comparatively short journey.

3) Either side is fine, as there are views on both sides at different parts of the journey.
