My 16 year old son and I are traveling from Zermatt to St. Mortiz later this month. We planned to take the Glacier Express, but there are no tickets left. It appears our alternative is taking local trains and changing in different cities along the way.
1) If we have a Swiss Travel Pass, do we need to make reservations for the local trains? Or, do we just go to the station in Zermatt and start heading towards St. Moritz?
2) Since this involves changing trains, is there enough time to get from train to train with luggage?
3) Lastly, if we will be in Zermatt the morning of June 25 and need to be in Zurich by the evening of June 27, are there alternative interesting train routes we could take? We were only going to St. Moritz because of the GEX.
Thanks, I appreciate any travel suggestions you have.
