Berner Oberland Sights



Schynige Platte

Schynige Platte Review

For a most splendid overview of the region, head to this 6,454-foot plateau for a picnic, or wander down any of its numerous footpaths, or visit its Alpine Botanical Garden, where more than 600 varieties of mountain flowers grow. A cogwheel train dating from 1893 takes you on the round-trip journey, though you may opt to walk either up or (more comfortably) down. Make sure to specify when you buy your ticket. Trains run from approximately 7:25 am to 4:45 pm. To get here, take the four-minute ride on the Bernese Oberland Railway from Interlaken East to Wilderswil.
