>> 1.Which is the cheapest route from Stuttgart to Zurich asI want to use the Swiss Travel Pass after I enter Switzerland, As per my search I found that I can go for Baden Württemberg Ticket from Stuttgart Airport to Ulm main Hbf and from Ulm main Hbf to Schaffhausen. Are there any other/better options?
The Baden-Württemberg Ticket might be a good option if the conditions attached to it suit you:
The regional day ticket for Baden-Württemberg is valid from 09:00 to 03:00 on the following day, all day on weekends and public holidays, on all local and regional trains, on transport association services and on almost all bus routes in Baden-Württemberg.
Price in 2nd class: EUR 23 plus EUR 5 per extra passenger (max. 4).

To find routes, use the Deutsche Bahn timetable at
When doing a timetable search, select the option "only local transport" if you will be using a Baden-Württemberg Ticket. Those tickets are not valid for IC, EC and ICE trains.
>> 2.Do I need to really reserve the seats on Golden pass route? Considering most of my travel will be on weekdays?
I would think the majority of people who travel on the official Golden Pass are tourists, including large tour groups. They travel every day of the week. You will be travelling in high season, and several people have reported recently in this forum that there was standing room only on the Golden Pass for people without reservations. The busiest sector is between Zweisimmen and Montreux, as those trains have the panoramic windows.
