In 1832, the Mountain Lodge Faulhorn was the Europe's highest hotel at an altitude of 2681 m.a.s.l. It was already known to travelogue authors at the beginning of the 19th century who praised the seemingly endless views from atop the peak of Mt. Faulhorn. Then the hotel also sported a table d'hote, as was common in finer establishments of the day.
The rooms have hardly changed since the time it opened but the restaurant has become a cozier place to enjoy some hearty food. The view, of course, has not changed at all: to the North Lakes Brienz and Thun, the Mittelland, Jura, and the French Vosges. The blood-red sundown seems to dip France into fire and in the morning, the Finsteraarhorn, Eiger, and the Jungfrau seem to have an orange spotlight on them as they wake up to another day. The Mountain Lodge Faulhorn is a bit of an insider's tip because one has to hike up for 2 1/2 hours in order to get there but it is nonetheless very popular. Once you have been there, you will understand why.
In summer, reservations for individual room / dormitory rooms mandatory since the hotel is often booked out far in advance.
