Harderkulm, Interlaken

(4.6/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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. With our online itinerary creator, Interlaken attractions like Harderkulm 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.

  • Near to the Centre of Interlaken, great option for the whole family open only in the summer. Great structure, good option for lunch, the restaurant offers typical dishes and the kitchen and very good. Has several external activities and aa that more attracts and treno on trail down the mountain in stands for one adult and one child from his lap. Fun.

  • Awesome view from the top. It's worth hiking up the mountain. You can also take the train up and hike down. The train goes at 60 degrees angle and you will get the feel. And most of if you are planning to visit switzerland for more than 3days and want to try various crazy things and get onto various hills or mountains, swiss travel pass is very very useful. I strongly recommend to take that as at some places you get upto 50℅ off and with it the travel is free.
  • Best views of the Swiss alps around the Interlaken region. On a beautiful day, it presents some breathtaking views of the valley below and the Jungfrau-ch peak. Doesn't take much time so if you have a short stop in interlaken you can visit
  • Amazing Scenery. With two lakes on each side and looking directly at the top of Europe. The glass terrace is a bit creepy but nice to be on and looking around. A must see place before you die.
  • Lovely view from the viewing platform. You can see both lakes. In the afternoon you can even get a sunset view.
  • Very amazing get place to visit, when the weather good you can enjoy the best view in Interlaken, you will see both of the lake.the cable price return ticket is 30CHF.
