SPB - Nostalgia before the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau

The Schynige Platte Railway travels from Wilderswil up to the vantage point of Schynige Platte. The 7.3 kilometre-long cogwheel section climbs a height difference of 1,420 metres.
The variety of natural attractions en route is impressive: forests, Alpine pastures and marvellous views of Lakes Thun and Brienz. During the trip to the summit station, passengers are treated to incredible, uninterrupted views of the snow-clad trio, the Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau.
