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.

Allalin – at the heart of things

If one did not have before one’s mind’s eye the dazzling mountain world and the glittering glacier next to the entrance to the Alpine Metro, one would forget that the tunnel walls rushing by at a speed of ten meters per second are part of the High Alps.

Following a ten-minute gondola cable ride to Felskinn, the trip continues with a ten meters per second ascent in the highest Metro funicular as you make your way to the world’s highest revolving restaurant.

Gemsstock – in the Gotthard region

In Andermatt it goes up everywhere - up to the Gotthard Pass, the Oberalp, to Nätschen and on the Gütsch and of course, to the Gemsstock.

A 1500-meter climb leads up from Andermatt to the Gemsstock at almost 3000 meters above sea level – from where you enjoy 360° views over half of Switzerland standing at the heart of the Swiss Alps.
