61 Schynige Platte-Louchernhorn-Schynige Platte


Description

This beautiful panoramic walk begins at the mountain restaurant just above the Schynige Platte railway station. Passing the Tuba lookout point, the scenic and well-developed ridge trail provides a view of Lake Brienz and the imposing Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau triumvirate towards Loucherhorn. At the Grätli signpost, the trail takes a sharp right turn and almost doubles back on itself before passing the mountain huts at Oberberg on the way back to the starting point. At the summit station of the cog railway, a detour into the alpine garden is worthwhile. This trail of almost one kilometre's length through the Alpine Garden gives you an excellent overview of the Alps' impressive botanical wealth.

Variants

Variant A: There are also two shorter circular trails that start and finish at Schynige Platte: the starting point of both is the Schynige Platte summit station. The first leads to the Tuba lookout point and from there back to the mountain hotel. Total hiking time: Schynige Platte-Tuba-Schynige Platte: 45 minutes.
