Brienzer Rothorn

Brienzer Rothorn

Visitors are captivated by the 360° views the Brienzer Rothorn has to offer

The Brienzer Rothorn holds a record, without a doubt! Visitors not only get to admire views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, but also of up to 690 other mountain peaks.
What is the purpose of having a beautiful landscape and stunning views, if you can’t explore them. Luckily, seven different hiking routes allow visitors to roam the Brienzer Rothorn to their heart’s content. If you like a challenge, you should hike along the ridge to Harder and observe the colony of ibexes on your way. The mountain restaurant Rothorn Kulm, which has gained an excellent reputation, offers traditional, regional and fresh cuisine and allows you to recharge your energy.

Full steam ahead

Switzerland’s only steam rack railway has been climbing up to the Brienzer Rothorn since 1892. With its distinctive red colour and nostalgic design, it transports passengers in summer to the mountain peak. After this journey from another era, visitors are greeted with scenic views of the glistening emerald Lake Brienz. It is also the perfect starting point for an extensive tour of the Rothorn.
