How to purchase seat reservations?

Seat reservations are typically available from 3 months prior to the travel date, but sometimes even earlier. They can be purchased online, or at staffed rail stations shortly before traveling. However, it makes sense to book as early as possible as seats can sell out. Below you'll find points of sale.
