Puffing we head on and up in Brienz, while ascending in a second climb from Sörenberg. On the south side with steam since 1892, and aboard large cabins on the mountain railway from the north. But views from both sides are pretty much the same – impressive, panoramic and in points 2350-meters high!

It takes around an hour for the small steam locomotive to push the red scenic carriage uphill from Lake Brienz all the way to the Brienzer Rothorn – and much of the machinery stems from the time it was founded. From the Unesco Biosphere Entlebuch (Sörenberg) region a cable car makes its way up to the Rothorn – in contrast to the steam locomotive, both during summer and winter.

Equally as diverese are also the views: From Bernese Alps to Lake Brienz and Grimsel region, as well as the Pilatus or Hogant. Summit restaurants and mountain guesthouse add to a warm welcome here, as well as guaranteeing a memorable stay! And hikes down to the Planalp, direction Brünig or even as far as the Kemmeriboden-bad add to geat adventure.
