Hi. It is cold sundae.

If you like wildflowers or have a Jungfrau VIP Pass, this is the Schynige platte worth thinking about. Whether it was 2016 or 2017, it was free with the Swiss Travel Pass, but it was only for one year and you can get a 50% discount with the Swiss Pass.

Weather in Schnickeplate

You can see Jungfrau Peak 3, and you need to check the weather in order to see Interlaken, Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. We recommend that you learn how to use the Meteoswis app, check the live webcam, and go up the morning of the day. You can also check it by clicking the "Real-Time Webcam" button at the bottom of the webpage.

■ How to get to the Schnicke Plate


Interlaken East Railway Station Interlaken ost -> Builders Townsville Wilderswil -> swini Kane Platte Schynige platte

Board at Interlaken East Station Platform 2. Regardless of the direction of Lauterbrunnen or Grindelwald, Wildersville stops. It's good to know that it's a 5 minute drive from Interlaken East Station to Buildersville.

It's great if you get into the habit of checking the timetable through the SBB app.

When you get off at Wilderswil Station in Wildersville, you'll find the slightly unusual train you see in the photo above. If you have a Jungfrau VIP Pass, you can just board. If you are a Swiss Pass holder or will only receive a discount coupon for Dongshin Freight Discount, you can purchase it at Interlaken East Station, Wildersville Station, and any train station affiliated with the Jungfrau Railway Authority.

■ The way to the Shinike Plate


Tour of the summit of Schnickeplate

When you arrive at the top of the Schnickeplate, you will be able to play the Alpenhorn at that time. It would be nice to listen to the traditional Swiss instrument performance.


It would be nice to go to the No. 1 hiking course, which takes a turn to Aussichtspunkt Daube. If you have difficulty with legs due to the slight slope, it would be enough to visit the Alpengarten wildflower viewing area. If you go to Daube, you can see downtown Interlaken and Lake Thun + Lake Brienz on both sides. You can see why Interlaken means Lake Sai.
