Schynige Platte – romantic rail

Since 1893 the cogwheel train has been transporting nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts from Wilderswil near Interlaken to the Schynige Platte, the starting point of beautiful hiking tours and mountain trails. Next to the mountain station you will find the Alpine Garden, which specializes in local flora.

Already the journey with a nostalgic cog railway and open carriages is an adventure in itself - and the higher you climb, the better the breath-taking views of the mountains that open up all around you.

Niederhorn – three-star views

Take the Lake Thun ship from Beatenbucht to Beatenberg and then further on to the Niederhorn. In about 30 minutes by train you will reach a wonderful vantage point facing the Bernese Oberland’s triumvirate of mountains.

Perfect postcard views from the boat – and a stop-off on the Beatenberg sun terrace above Lake Thun. The Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau also present themselves on the way to the Gemmenalphorn, and you catch a glimpse of ibex as well.

First – more than a dream

There are only a few places in the Alps where the glaciers reach as deeply into the valley as in Grindelwald. The best view is obtained on the First vantage point (2167 meters), which can be reached by means of an entertaining gondola ride.

Here not only the upper and lower Grindelwald glaciers seek the limelight, instead the four-thousand-meter-high Finsteraar, Schreck, Lauteraar and Fiescherhörner also stick their necks out!
