Harderkulm, Interlaken

4.6
#1 of 94 in Trails in Switzerland
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.

  • This is a must visit if you are in Interlaken, even if just for the view. It's had a bit of a makeover since my last visit and is greatly improved. Go early to avoid the queue at the funicular and enj...  more »

  • One of the travel attraction you must visit. This place is between two beautiful lakes, you can see both from this top.
  • Superb View , Great place to sit and enjoy a drink or coffee , Display Picture Quality views for Photos . Entry and Train up is Discounted with the Swiss Pass
  • Absolutely stunning views and not super busy if you go late afternoon. You can either take the feat of engineering funicular up or apparently it's a 2.5 hour hike up. Either way you are rewarded with beautiful views! There is also a restaurant and informal cafe where you can grab a drink and a snack or a proper meal, and the prices weren't too bad either.
  • Beautiful view, worth taking the tram up and then walking down.
  • In the Jungfrau region of Switzerland, Harder Kulm is located near Interlaken, and it may not be the highest points in the region. There are many other high mountain peaks. However, it does offer spectacular views of Lake Brienz and Lake Thun, along with the mountains and pretty villages in between. You can ride the funicular to the upper station. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
