I am going to Germany, Austria and Hungary in April. Will there be ample seating available at that time of year on Eurail trains? Is it necessary/advisable to reserve seats for daytime travel? Thanks, G
PS - I and my girlfriend will have 15-day Eurail passes.

Eurail don't run trains, it's an organisation that sells international passes and splits the money between a large number of operators (make sure you know which don't contribute to the pass).

As long as you avoid the Easter weekend it should be OK for two people (preferably without backpacks the size of a child!). Friday and Sunday afternoons and evenings can be busy on some long distance routes in Germany. use www.bahn.com for timetables (offical in Germany, very reliable in Austria, good enough in Hungary), they are currently showing demand forecasts for German long distance trains, whether this will continue into April I don't know, it is info provided to avoid heavy crowds during covid.
