I love frolicking around the playground with the kids or sniffing the many flowers in the Alpine garden. A hobby of mine is photography. I especially like to take lots of photos at the various “photo points”, which I then send to my friends all over the world. Right now I'm busy practising my alphorn. Oh yes, I love food too. The menus in the restaurant are simply delicious. And there is even a “Lily ice cream”, my absolute favourite dessert and really tasty.
The Schynige Platte is home to a unique floral display in the Alpine region. Those who follow the Swiss Flower & Panorama Trail are right in the middle of the rich alpine flora. What there is to admire changes from month to month. The trail leads from the railway station to the mountain hotel.
Air, nothing but air – above, below, to the right and left: Being on the First Flieger is easy, freedom is limitless and the pace is high. Perfectly secured in the stable harness, up to four persons whiz along the 800 metre long steel cable from First to Schreckfeld at a top speed of 84 kilometres per hour.
Flying with a bird of prey can be exhilarating. Especially when an eagle called First Glider takes flight. His four "passengers" float through the mountain landscape and enjoy a panoramic view at high speeds: To begin with, the First Glider is pulled backwards from Schreckfeld towards First at 72 km/h.
