Im trying to find the website to book seat reservations on the Gotthard Express and the Golden Line Express trains from the US. I've tried RailEurope.com, and myswitzerland.com but not able to find timetable and a place to purchase the seat reservations. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

For Golden Pass Line (www.myswissalps.com/go ldenpass) read this www.mob.ch/en/reservat ion-procedure and/or www.myswissalps.com/go ldenpass/tickets.

For Gotthard Panorama Express (www.myswissalps.com/go tthardpanoramaexpress) see www.myswissalps.com/go tthardpanoramaexpress/ packages or bit.ly/2GJzAwv. Or bit.ly/2Juk4X5 if you want a more elongated discussion of the subject. You can only make reservations for the train leg. Reservations are not possible on the paddle steamer.

Reservations are not compulsory on the Golden Pass Line trains. They are normally recommended between Montreux and Zweisimmen during tourist seasons. If you are travelling before 1 June though, reservations are not possible on that section due to a short bus detour around some construction works between Montbovon and Château-d’Oex.

Can you make the reservations before you have the travel passes? There are no discounts for reservations are there? And the reservation fee is the same for adults and kids? I’m assuming we should make reservations for mid July travel?

Thanks

Yes, No, Yes, Correct - for GPEX it is mandatory.

You might find this useful.

Thank you for the information. Can you send me the same link for the Golden?

There is no SBB page for the Golden Pass Line because it is a collection of disparate trains. Try www.mob.ch/en/reservat ion-procedure.
