One of the best views I’ve ever seen. Great variation in the walk, very well marked trail and all in all just stunning. A must do when nearby. Just make sure that the Schynge Platte train is riding ;-)

Tres belle rando exécuté en 5h30 Pas de grosse partie technique. Démarré la rando à 1800m d’altitude, traversé une multitude de paysage, champêtre, glacier, rocaille. Voir de belles vaches en pleine nature. Rando super agréable. Je recommande

One of the best bikes in the Bernese Oberland. We did First to Schynige Platte and really liked doing it that way!

We encountered fresh snow and obscured views due to clouds and fog. Once we passed Faulhorn we finally got a great view of the surrounding peaks. Last gondola down from First is 5:30pm and the hike took us 6.5 hours with a brief stop at the hut. Note you can’t use the WC at the hut unless you buy something or pay 2 Francs.
