A unique attraction displaying around 800 species of plants native to the Swiss Alps growing in their natural communities. A site of scientific research and nature conservation at 1967 metres above sea level, which also gives visitors a closer look at the beauty, wealth and secrets of Alpine flora.

The Alpine Garden is currently in hibernation and is left to the black grouse and mountain hares. We look forward to welcoming you back to Schynige Platte in summer 2024.
