Intro

The Schynige Platte railway, which opened in 1893, is one of Switzerland’s pioneering lines. The cog train climbs at a sedate 12 kph up to Schynige Platte, passing many panoramic viewpoints overlooking Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, where the great Swiss artist Ferdinand Hodler painted some of his famous landscapes, more than 100 years ago.

After a 50-minute journey you arrive at the summit, 1,967 m above sea level, with stunning views of the world-famous Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, so close you feel you could touch them. One of Switzerland’s great nostalgic rides – not to be missed.

other highlights:

  • Alpine botanical garden
  • Schynige Platte Mountain Hotel
  • Hiking trail: Schynige Platte–Faulhorn–First

125th anniversary of the Schynige Platte railway


This summer, the Schynige Platte railway is celebrating its 125th anniversary, making it one of the earliest examples of Swiss mountain railway culture. The carriages feature wooden benches and exude the charm of the Belle Époque.
During the anniversary celebration, the train will run from 25 May. Passengers will be able to enjoy the soothing sounds of Alphorns every day, and each Sunday guests can take part in a guided tour through the Alpine garden.
