(90+ reviews on the web)
Lookout Tourist Spot
Hike to the rounded peak of Faulhorn and admire the rugged scenery of the snowcapped Bernese Alps. Several trails wind their way to the 2,681 m (8,796 ft) summit. At the top, take in sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and Lake Thurne below. Stop in the well-known hotel at the summit, where you can reward yourself with a fortifying meal. The ascent requires a decent level of fitness, but the well-preserved trail won't present any great challenge to experienced hikers. With our online itinerary creator, Grindelwald attractions like Faulhorn can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
