The activity is excellent, the hikes at the top are superb to do. On the other hand, be careful with GetYourGuide, they are not well interfaced with the Swiss railways, you have to come with the printed confirmation otherwise it's very very very difficult. Better to book directly on the jungfrau.ch website.

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.

A great experience - the train ride and the plants were impressive!
