<<"Just me and my wife. Only concerned that we will have flown from LosAngeles and will have our bags. We'll want to sit down! Do you thinkwe'll easily find seats?Also, do we have to buy tickets for a specific train time or a ticket will work on any train on that given route?">>
You'll find seats. Easily. If you want quiet, comfort and napping , you might consider first class for the first day's jourmey.
Tickets can be purchased for that day or for any future date. Good for all day.
For occupancy, use the tools provided by the SBB. See:
Once you have selected a route and a train, you can see expected occupancy rates.
For your day trips around Wengen, use the SBB timetable plus the maps at -
