I have taken a Swiss pass for 8 days.

Please let me know where the same has to be authenticated as I will be going from Zurich to Lucern by train.

Also please let me know where I can keep my luggage at Lucern station as I want to go to Mt.Pilatus.

Also I will be taking Golden pass train from Luzern to Interlaken.

Please let me know whether there are any charges for this train as I have a swiss pass.

Also is prior reservation required as it is difficult to predict the time when we will be done with excursion to Pilatus and Lucern sighseeing.

Hi Sanjay,

A pass needs to be activated before you start using it for the first time. How it's done depends on where you purchased it. So please check the Swiss Travel Pass reseller list as it's explained there, and it's also explained in the 'How to use' section of the pass page.

The Golden Pass train is free with your pass. No need to reserve or pay extra.
