Hello there,

My husband and I will be in Wengen in beginning of June, and were wondering when the trail opens...

We were there last October and it was amazing - I can't imaging being in the region again without doing the Schynige Platte - First trail again.

I saw a really old post from 2013 that said the trail opens on June 15th, but since this year is especially warm was hopeful that perhaps it will open earlier.

As I can't seem to find any site with this info, was wondering if anyone here knows...

Thanks in advance,

Hi TS2017,

Unfortunately, there isn't a hard date for opening times for Schynige Platte or other hikes in the higher elevations. If the weather continues to stay warm it may well be open in early June, but I don't think anyone can say for sure.

Dear Lucas,

Thanks for the quick response :-)

So I guess it will be a gamble... hopefully we will have luck on our side.
