Hi Diogo,

Thank you for joining MySwissAlps! Any official travel document is fine, so your national ID card will work as well. You do not need reservations for trains in Switzerland by the way. It's more convenient to not book a seat. That way you can take any train, and there's no risk of loosing the reservation fee if your plane is late.

All you need is the Swiss Transfer Ticket. You can print it at home. Please see the SBB tourist webshop at www.swissrailways.com/ en. After filling out your address, they will show the delivery options. Pick "Online Ticket" from the bottom of the list. They will e-mail the ticket within 1-3 business days (no delivery fees).
