I wondered if travelling to Schynige Platte would be worth it, having also visited Jungfraujoch. The answer is YES. Please take the train all the way up, you will have magnificent views on the way up and at the top. The botanical garden is nice...More

It was my first trip to the Schynige Platte and a wonderful experience. The ride with the historical rack railway is memorable. The scenery is beautiful. On top it is well worth to do at least the 45 minutes panorama hike with an amazing view...More

Really characterful train, been going 100 years. Shop and restaurant plus walks and views at the summit. Not that we saw it all in the snow in August. Bit cold, bring plenty of suitable layers! Alphorn playing was very impressive.

My wife and I spent one day exploring Schynige Platte. The train ride to and from the top is relaxing and very enjoyable. The track crisscrosses a hiking path for those who prefer a strenuous walk up and meanders through several different mountain environments -...More

We went up in the cog train up to SP which takes 50 mins and goes slowly through dense alpine forests and burrows through the landscape. Touristy it may be, however the sudden appearance of the big three mountains when we emerged from a tunnel...More
