Our trip to Schynige Platte was a delight from start to finish! Climbing up the steep mountain terrain by cog wheel trains is an experience worth by itself. Half way up is a tiny train station with restaurant where you can disembark and enjoy a...More

Views over the Jungfrau mountains and Interlaken are absolutely superb. The journey is on a cog mountain railway and although goes slowly it is a pleasant ride to the top. You can then walk a brisk fairly challenging 30 minutes plus-but the views from the...More

I visit Schynige Platte with a couple of friends last week. I had a fantastic time! The view was out of this world. There is no better place to see Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. If you have the change to stay up at the hotel,...More

We got the cog wheel train up to the station that gave us views of the Jungfrau, Eiger and Monch mountains. As you slowly chug up the mountain side if the weather is good you have brilliant views looking down the valleys. From the station...More

Chose to visit this place instead of the overcrowded Jungfraujoch (a completely different experience by the way, if you haven't been there or a similar place like Titlis then go). The train up was very interesting and a bit expensive. The train departs from Wilderswil...More

This was probably my favourite place on my trip. I got the train (discounted with a swiss pass) up as far as Breitlaunen and walked the rest of the way up. This was definitely worth it, it was steep and you need hiking boots but...More

Very easy to access. We came from Bern, and connected through Interlaken Ost (where we bought our tickets), to Wilderswil and caught on their cog train (apparently over 100 years old!) It’s a slow journey up; takes about an hour. From the top there are...More

We had a great time here. The cog railway is great. You're greeted by alpine horn players when you arrive. My son, a french horn player, got to try out the alpine horn and did pretty good! There's a short walk through a beautiful alpine...More

Hi Gill, thanks for your enquiry. It is possible to take the wheelchair up. Do inform the train station in Wilderswil in advance so they can assure a smooth transport. Kind regards
