  • Is an experienced hiker and visits annually the Alps for this if daylight saving time. This was my first visit to the "rear" Wengen. Good hike is of course in Wengen also but Schynige Platte offers something quite amazing, a great hiking pass at approx 7hours of very hilly terrain with a wonderful view over the gorgeous environments and locations.
