The restaurant looks like a small castle and they offer evening trains to enjoy a wonderful dinner on Harder Kulm.

Schynige Platte Railway: Those who visit Schynige Platte with the cog railway feel as if they were in the "Belle Epoque".

Also located here is the Alpine Garden, where 600 plant species grow.
