The rack railway which transports visitors to the Schynige Platte oozes nostalgic charm. Since its first journey in the 19th century, it has been the visitors’ favourite means of transport. If you prefer an even more leisurely and more nostalgic ride, you should opt for the steam train instead. The steam locomotive H 2/3 5 only climbs to the top of the mountain four times every summer. Its unparalleled appearance and the views from the train are however well worth a ride - despite the required early booking.
The Schynige Platte’s versatile landscape fascinates visitors time and time again. The hike to the Burglauenen station leads past the Alp Iselten and offers views across the Lütschinen valley and to the three mountains of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Or why not take a stroll on the circular Louchernhorn trail or a hike across the Faulhorn to First, where views are equally beautiful. The mountain lodge Männdlenen provides visitors on this idyllic route with a variety of culinary delights.
