Welcome to Schynige Platte

If you would like to experience a magnificent sunrise or sunset then stay with us in our nostalgic rooms that have changed little from your grandparents days.

Traditional Swiss Alphorn

A wonderful piece of Swiss tradition kept alive by local musicians. Daily performances during the summer.

A hiker’s paradise!

Schynige Platte is the start of the “classic” Swiss hiking route to First, via Faulhorn. This is a must do for any outdoor enthusiasts and take in the breathtaking scenery.

Up, up and away…

Sit back and let an experienced pilot take you in to the air. Paragliding is on the top of many people’s bucket list and Interlaken is one of the best places in the world to try. Try a special flight from Schynige Platte to the centre of Interlaken.

Schynige Platte

2019 Season: Open May 30 – Oct 27

When hiking on the Schynige Platte you don’t get very far. Every few steps you stop to admire the stars, umbels and bells that bloom on the meadows. Or you can stop to admire the panorama.

Everyone starts to slow down the pace. If they have not already done so: in the nostalgic trip on the Schynige Platte Railway or later in the restaurant with its breathtaking view.
