In the course of the summer, the entire wealth of Swiss Alpine flora, around 600 different species, can be admired in the garden; however, the vegetation and flowering periods are strongly dependent on outside influences.
For this reason, we give approximate periods for the blossoming periods of selected species in our flowering calendar. The likelihood of seeing a species in bloom is highest in the middle of the given blossoming period.
From which perspective do the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau look most impressive? On the Schynige Platte everyone makes their own film: the nature cinema is open from June to October, a circular route at over 2,000 metres above sea level. On the way, wooden columns with spy holes frames that each provide a different view. The two huge picture frames provide a very big cinema: You can sit on its lower bar and take pictures with the triumvirate in the background. There’s also a cinema for the ears: Take a seat on one of the wooden wellness benches, close your eyes and enjoy the local film music: the call of the alpine chough and the whisper of the firs.
