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 3,103-meter mountain can be reached with three modern mountain trains. From Zermatt to Sunnegga and via the Alp Blauherd one can quickly reach the Rothorn and enjoy an unforgettable panoramic view.
Besides the well-known train to the Üetliberg, the aerial cableway Adliswil - Felsenegg, south of Zürich, constitutes an additional link to the Albis chain and therefore to Zürich’s very own mountain.
