The three trains you mention are "named trains" running on routes that are also served by other trains. To take these trains you need a valid ticket, valid for the route you are travelling on (and the Swiss Pass is such a ticket), plus you need to pay a surcharge. You can buy this on board however, if there are still seats.
You can of course take other trains that take the same route and pass the same scenery. For these ordinary trains you don't need to reserve or pay a surcharge. You'll just have to suffer not being in the presence of Japanese tourgroups...

I travelled on the glacier Express using my Swiss Flexi Pass and the surcharge was 31euro from Zermatt to Chur. The scenery is spectacular but I agree with the previous poster that the scenery is exactly the same on a regional train, which can be used with no surcharge. I would never use the Glacier Express again and if you check out my tip on my Zermatt page, you will see why.:

Travel Tips for Interlaken

Miscellaneous Tips...

by Donna_in_India

Meeting New Places and Seeing New Places

These tips are based on my last 8 weeks of traveling in Europe/Africa:

1. Buy/pre-order as many museum/attraction tickets online as you can.
2. Ask the taxi fare before taking off in a taxi, especially if it’s late at night or coming from an airport.
3. Charge your camera batteries every night.
4. If you have a Eurail pass and need to make reservation make them in Europe. It’s a lot less expensive.
5. If you’re climbing a few hundred steps up a tower, monument, etc. go only a clear, sunny day.
6. Learn at least Hello, Thank you, and Goodbye in the foreign language of the countries you are visiting.
7. Turn your cell phones off inside churches, museums, etc. If it rings and you must take the call, do it outside!
8. If there’s a running commentary (live or recorded), be polite and be quiet.
9. Dress appropriately and be respectful in churches.
10. If you’re traveling with children, don’t let them disrupt others around you. If they cry or throw a tantrum, take them outside.
11. If you have a complaint, do it reasonably without yelling and cursing.
12. Regarding pictures:
a. If there are signs saying “No pictures”, don’t take pictures! There’s a reason for the signs. Do you really, really need that picture of Mona Lisa to prove you’ve seen it?
b. Learn how to use your camera before the trip. If there are signs saying “No flash”, make sure you know how to use the camera without it.
c. If you see a couple or family with one person taking pictures of the other(s), offer to take a picture of both/all of them. Maybe they’ll reciprocate.
13. Check local holidays. Since many museums and stores will be closed, you’ll need to have other plans for the day. (Most stores throughout much of Europe are closed on Sunday.)
14. Don’t try to do too much. Leave some open time to just explore.
15. You’re on vacation so relax and have a good time!

Interlaken's "Central Park"

by Manara

There is a green area in the centre of Interlaken, called Höhe Matte. It is a piece of land that a benefactor left to the municipality of Interlaken in his will, putting a condition to it: the land had to remain a green area, without any buildings.
The Höhe Matte has become very useful for the town and its visitors: it provides an excellent landing area for paragliders, it is the perfect location for fireworks when there are big celebrations, and most important of all it makes possible to see the Jungfrau even during a downtown stroll.
The street bordering the northern side of the Höhe Matte is called Höheweg. Obviously enough the hotels that enjoy an open view of the Jungfrau across the green expanse of the Höhe Matte are the most expensive in town.

Snow

by Jenniflower

Growing up, I had visions of what Switzerland must be like - and these visions came out of books, the television and postcards... and I wasnt disappointed when we finally got there!!!

For 2 days before we arrived, there had been alot of snowng, and on the day we arrived it dawned bright and blue, with no snowing, just a fresh and beautiful layer on the ground. This was just perfect. Travelling in Switzerland with a blanket of snow, but not travelling in snow, which hinders somewhat!

by globetrott

Haslital-museum in Meiringen

Haslital is the local name of the valley around Meiringen and inside a beautiful old wooden building next to the church you may see the Hasli- & Naturmuseum Meiringen with plenty of exhibits about the life in the valley and in the alps high above it. There are also 150 different birds shown in the museum - a good chance to see rare birds from a short distance !
The museum is open daily 03.00-06.00p.m.
July&August also Monday-Friday 07.00-09.00p.m.
FREE entrance, But donations are welcome & expected !!
Museum der Landschaft Hasli is just a few meters off the campanile and the church of Meiringen.

Did'nt do it but the paragliders seemed to be having brilliant fun jumping off the mountains around Interlaken. Many were hovering around the Eiger till late in the evening and then landing in the center of the town.
