Booking seat reservations for IC 1073

Hi all! I’m trying to book seat reservations on IC 1073 (Bern - Interlaken) for mid-December 2023 and haven’t had any luck on the Eurail website or the website which Eurail recommends as an alternative to book seat reservations. Getting the following error on Eurail website:

“Prices unavailable

No price results were found. Pass holder reservations may be sold out for this connection, but there are other ways to check for available seats—more info below our timetable.”


The other website also comes with this error:

“Internal system error (103)”


Does anyone have any idea or may have encountered this problem? Could it just be that they haven’t made the seat reservations available yet for the trains? 

Any help is appreciated! Thank you :)

You don't need seat reservations on Swiss trains - and in general they can't be made.

You just board the train an find an empty seat.

I agree. Seat reservations aren't a thing at all in the country. I've lived here all my life and never made one.

As a tip : go to train ends as people are generally lazy and board in the middle.

No need for seat reservations in Switzerland.
