I have global pass but I could not make a seat reservation for the train from Bruxellesto Vienna, however seat reservation is not required for this train. How can I be certain to have a seat on the train without a reservation?

Hi Jasmine, for trains that do not require a seat reservation, you can just hop on and find a seat that is empty. In most cases there are still seats available. If you want to be 100% certain, you can choose to make a reservation. If you have not been able to make a reservation, you can do so at the station. 

Addition: The direct night train Brussels - Vienna needs a reservation
