Harderkulm, Interlaken

4.6
#1 of 86 in Parks in Canton of Bern
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.

  • The flat top was really quite nice, you can start the restaurant. The cozy was the way, which is quite flat at the beginning / looks. So not "steep" restaurant, but the other way. The restaurant was quite nice, with a top view. Where to tour more often times would have the chance, to eat a snack on a bench.

  • At the train station for a very minute, take a very round of cables, about every half of the time to do another. On the observation deck, you can look at a few peaks and two lakes.

  • Already reaching the top is exciting with their funicular that makes a difference of approximately 1000 meters in 10 minutes. Above the scenery is lovely with deck and bar which features chairs that make you forget the world

  • a fantastic place overseeing the beautiful twin lakes of interlaken. after so many hill tops you feel you have seen everything. but this still has something different and new to offer. not being covered in the pass is a disappointment though. also climate changes very quickly and if it's cloudy you hardly see anything down. but a clear weather gives a wide view of the scenic surroundings
  • It's expensive to get up here as well, but try to buy a lunch and ride special for better value. The views over the lakes and Interlaken are well worth it.
  • 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.
