  • We took the train from Interlaken Ost train station and went to Wilderswil, (one-stop train), and this season on a cog railway got old, that we went up to Schynige Platte. The view during the ascent are very nice and enjoyed. The journey takes about 50 min. On top of all this the Alpengarten. With a transportation card (Swiss travel pass), the transport is covered, it has no extras.
