Schynide Platte

Alpine Horns

Views of the Jungfrau and Eiger

Lake Thun

The mountain goat strikes again!

Lake Brienz

At the end of September Alessio and I had a free friday, we went to the Jungfrau region, to visit Schynige Platte which is 1,967m above see level. Once you arrive in Interlaken, it is only one stop to Wilderswil, where the historic cogwheel railway is situated.

It takes 50mins to go the short 7km, but once up you are rewarded with magnificent views of the Jungfrau, Eiger and Mönch to mention but a few. It was somewhat cloudy so the views were not completely clear, but nevertheless still amazing.

Once up we stopped in the restaurant for some refuelling and then Alessio got a chance to play at the small playground. Afterwards I think we did the panoramaway which takes you to the viewpoint called Daube, it certainly gave us lots of exercise. It was worth all the huffing and puffing to see the 360 degrees view of Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, the famous mountain trio and interlaken.

I hope to visit more mountains this year including Titlis and Schilthorn, where one of the James Bond movies was filmed.
