Suitable for children
We were here on Schynige Platte in a mere two hours from our house in Zurich. The location is suitable for children. My twelve-year-old son is having fun in the playground and I am enjoying the view across the panorama.
A break from everyday life
The fresh air up here is lovely. I feel lifted out of everyday life. It's truly impressive that we have this world of mountains right at our doorstep.
I have seen pictures of the Schynige Platte and thought that I have to go there. The panorama is truly dazzling. The trip on the little train is a true adventure. You can relax completely.
Interesting to know...
The Ferdinand Hodler lookout point: a source of inspiration not only for Swiss artists.
Spend the night there like in the good old days: rooms in the style of the founding period.
