Hello Rosamond,

Yes trains and boats will be operating.

Maria provided you with links to the attractions you are interested in visiting in response to your earlier post. This might also be of use - www.rigi.ch/en/Informa tion/Mountain-railways/Timetable-tickets/Online-Tickets-Rigi-Bahnen.

You can use the SBB Timetable (bit.ly/2HH1U7B) to plan your travel. If you are not familiar with using the timetable it will pay to first read the instructions on this page (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable).

A Saver Day Pass (www.myswissalps.com/sa verdaypass and bit.ly/2rkekat) will cover the entire round trip to Rigi and the return train trip to Engelberg for Titlis.

Hi,

Got another question. I have bought the Swiss Travel Pass and was wondering if I can just board a train from Basel to Lucerne and sit anywhere or do I need to make a reservation at the ticket counter before I board the train.

And same with Lucerne to Interlaken to Spiez.

thanks

Rosamond

Hi Rosamond,

Just hop on the train (in a 1st or 2nd Class carriage depending on which class pass your have) and go. Reservations are extremely uncommon on Swiss trains. See www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/howtouse.

Hi Rosamond

As Rockoyster points out reservations on Swiss trains are unnecessary except for panoramic trains, as you can read about here www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/reservations
