Switzerland - rail travel cannot get more efficient and scenic at the same time. One of the top destinations for Australian travellers, it offers lakes, mountains, rivers, quaint towns - all accessible by an extensive rail network that always runs on time.

Do I need to reserve a seat?

Most Swiss trains do not require or even assign seat reservations, so you can just hop on with your rail pass or your open ticket. That makes travelling extremely flexible - if you miss one of the trains, just hop on the next one.

However, most scenic services do require a seat reservation.

Not required Required Highly recommended Separate rail pass
regular services Glacier Express GoldenPass Line Jungfraujoch
  Bernina Express    
  Gotthard Panorama Express    
  Chocolate Train
