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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
