  • Good trip with historic railway and wonderful views of mountains and lakes. Also you can walk. The children were also impressed and were allowed to try out even an Alphorn. Would go on every case.

  • talk about majestic views! This is what its all about...the Alps in full wonder and glory. maybe take a scarf and wear your hat and gloves! 
  • The Schynige Platte, affords magnificent views of the surrounding mountains, Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, as well as the Brienz and Lake Thun. Depending on the condition to the climb on foot or historic cogwheel train from Wilderswil near Interlaken from in attack take. And depending on the whim that use panoramic terrace for dining and sunbathing or as a starting point for a hike, for example to the Faulhorn. For this, you should be then but somewhat in shape. Very worthwhile!
