Create an itinerary including Harderkulm
The snowy slopes of Harderkulm overlook the town of Interlaken, offering extensive views stretching all the way to the high peaks of west Switzerland's mountain ranges. The easiest way to get a taste of those distant Alpine giants without having to gear up for a serious hike is to take the funicular to this 1,322 m (4,337 ft) summit. Or, if you feel up for a challenge and have the right kind of shoes, climb up the mountain on foot and take the railway back into town. Before you hurry down, visit the summit's castle-like restaurant and take a few snapshots from the lofty viewing platform extending over the side of the mountain.

  • MUST visit place if in Interlaken or even passing by. We loved it. The train ride goes up about 1.2KM and was fun. Ensure you get visitor card from Hotel which will save you 10 Swiss Frank per person. The view from up Top is gorgeous. You can see both lakes Thun n Brienze. Highly recommend this place for the whole family.
  • Great place to visit while in interlakken. It is about 1300 meters above and takes 5 minutes with a cable car - nice trip. Wait times between cars is about 10 minutes though total wait depends upon the crowds. The view is superb and breath taking. The restaurant is a good place to eat / drink and an experience in itself. We tried fondue though seriously overpriced...came with hard bread and 3 potatoes foe about 60 chf - a popular dish, that is not worth it.
