Faulhorn, Grindelwald
(4.7/5 based on 90 reviews on the web)
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.

  • With the gondola to the ridge from there to Lake Mountain Alpine (picturesque like in the picture book) and the way up to the Faulhorn is a dream setting is already exhausting. But if you arrive above and from the terrace at leckerm dinner enjoy the panorama, which is just gorgeous.

  • Difficult hike, but well worth the time and effort. Fantastic view!
  • A strenuous hike but the views were definitely worth it! Also make sure you do it backwards (starting from First), it's a LOT easier!
  • Great views.
  • Amazing vyhlidka on parties, either on Brienzsee or on udoli Grindelwald. Available smaller parking and restaurant
