Schynige Platte is accessed via a cog railway departing from Wilderswil which is about 5 minutes by the regular train from Interlaken Ost (East) train station.
I was heading there for the highly recommended Schynige Platte to First hike so I did not spend a great deal of time there but I did take a walk through the alpine garden which was quite interesting, although understandably due to the late season was starting to go into hibernation for the winter.
The views from Schynige Platte of both the town of Interlaken and lakes Thun and Brienze are fantastic, a short walk on the escarpment can improve the view even more. As other reviews have identified the views of Eiger, Jungfrau and Monk are also very good.
Probably the best thing about it from my point of view is that it is less inundated with 'regular' tourists who prefer the more standard routes that go directly to the main Alps attractions, so it is quieter, giving you the chance to really take in the scenery with less distractions.
