Brienzer Rothorn, 2266m

The Hotel Rothorn Kulm (2266 m.a.s.l.) high above Lake Brienz offers a wonderful view, pleasant rooms, delicious food, and getting there is a quite an extraordinary experience.

Getting to the Hotel Rothorn Kulm (2266 m.a.s.l.) is quite an experience. No prosaic getting there by car or even by aerial cable-car but by steam-driven rack-and-pinion train. The ride there can even be made more romantic by getting to Brienz by a paddle-steamer from Interlaken plying Lake Brienz and Lake Thun.

The Chaumont Panorama Tower

The 15-minute ride aboard the colorful funicular to the Chaumont is a taste of the things to come atop the mountain.

Tour de Moron

The imposing 30-meter-high tower at Moron was designed by Mario Botta. The view from the top extends far across the first Jura chain up to the Alpine arc, from the Säntis to the Montblanc. In the north the Vosges and the Black Forest come into view.

Brienzer Rothorn

The three and four thousand metre peaks cluster round the Brienzer Rothorn. Early risers may be rewarded by seeing the sunrise between the mountains. There is a cable-car from Sörenberg and, from Brienz, the only scheduled steam-powered rack railway service in Switzerland. Various different opportunities for walking, with varying degrees of difficulty, or you can go right over to the Brünig Pass, 4.5 hrs.
