Schynige Platte – Top of Swiss Tradition

Risking your life crawling on a ledge to grab the pearl of the Alps? It's not necessary. No one needs to risk anything to see the Edelweiss at close range. In the Schynige Platte alpine garden, it grows with the black lobelia, the paradise lily and around 800 other species in an easily accessible environment. Visitors can see two thirds of the entire alpine flora on an approximately one kilometre long walk, entering artificial terrains such as the Urgesteinfeld or the Kalkschutthalde, where very specific species thrive. Picks, ropes and snap hooks can stay at home. Entrance fee included in railway fare
