It was a nice experience .. the enchanting alpine garden, the circular route to be mastered well .. also for older people, the wonderful view of the surrounding mountains .. only the cramped sitting in the train, due to rucksacks etc., did not appeal to me .

The Schynige Platte is worth the trip. Beautiful circular hiking trails, the Aipengarten and a good restaurant.
