We walked up here from Bidmi. The walk up was not too strenuous and we enjoyed it. At the top the views are fantastic, you can see over lake Brienz, over to Wetterhorn, Meiringen and down the valley over Innertkirchen towards the Grimsel and Susten passes. We didn't eat at the restaurant, just used the table and chairs to eat... More

this was not just an amazing view from the viewpoint, but the whole experience, from the first cable car ride to the first station, then the 3 other gondola rides to the top, the views just got better and better. You can actually see the reichenbach falls from the cable car, and like I said the views just go on... More

We went up here to see the view and weren't disappointed. Panoramic views all around where you can sit outside or upstairs in the gallery. We got to watch jets fly past, skiers start their runs down the mountain and a para glider set off. Just be sure not to leave too late otherwise you'll need to ski down!

After checking the weather on one of the Swiss Cam websites, we headed up to the Alpen Tower on a series of cable car lifts which took some 25-30 minutes. We were not disappointed. The views are spectacular.

The Alpen Tower in a fairly undiscovered gem. The masses all go up the main mountains , but this gem is relatively unknown. You travel up in peace and quiet , just the breeze blowing round the gondola as you climb. Once you reach the top the views are fantastic. In one direction you look across to the Classic Oberland...

If you’re staying near either the Brienzersee (Brienz Lake) or the Thunersee (Thun Lake), most day trips to high elevations will begin at Interlaken, which offers ready access to some truly spectacular Alpine destinations, including Jungfrau, Schilthorn, and First. In this respect Planplatten is a bit off the beaten track, as it requires a trip to Meiringen, about 7.5 miles... More
