That looks like a good trip.
The Swiss Travel Pass get you 25% discount on Jungfraujoch beyond Wengen or Grindelwald.
You can normally make reservations on the panoramic trains 90 days out from your travel date.
The Glacier Express (GEX) - see www.myswissalps.com/gl acierexpress/gettingth ere) - should be the only journey on your itinerary that you need a reservation for. You can reserve seats here shop.glacierexpress.ch /gex_en.
You can use a 2nd Class Swiss Travel Pass and buy a Class upgrade for the Glacier Express (GEX). A Class Upgrade cost half the difference between 1st and 2nd class fares.
From Interlaken to Zermatt go via Kandersteg. You will then travel on the Regio-Express Lötschberger train over the traditional, more than 100 year old mountain route, giving you a wonderful view along the impressive peaks and down into the Rhone Valley.
Use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to plan your travel. If you haven’t used it before it will pay to read the instructions on that page before delving into the timetable.
