Hiking on the Schynige Platte is a visual feast. Every few steps you will stop to absorb the superb vistas of high alpine peaks, scan the emerald waters of the lakes below or revel in the color bursts of alpine flowers sprinkling the meadows.
Everyone starts slowing their pace to take it all in. It all starts with a trip on the nostalgic train ride up the mountain, wandering the gorgeous landscape and ending at our welcoming restaurant framed by breathtaking views
