If Interlaken had a king, he would reside on the Harder Kulm. From the viewing platform at 1,322 metres above sea level, he would graciously look down upon Lake Brienz and Lake Thun, or admire the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau. In fact, the Harder Kulm Panorama Restaurant is reminiscent of a castle. In order to visit it, however, you don't need to be a king – just take a seat in the funicular and ascend Interlaken's own mountain.
A short walk from Interlaken-Ost railway station to the Harder Railway valley station. With a modern funicular to Harder Kulm. Travel time from valley station: 10 minutes.

It's so relaxing up here
Switzerland is famous for its great views. This is why I absolutely had to come here. The view is much more impressive than I thought, however! And it's so relaxing up here.
Greenery cannot be any more intense
The cool October weather is a pleasant change to my home. And the landscape! Greenery cannot be any more intense. My next travel destination will be Switzerland again. My father has to see this country.
View over the whole region
I like our local mountain because I can quickly get to the viewing spot. I like to show our region to friends from this spot. The path up to Harder Kulm is also my Nordic walking route.
The steep trip is exciting
The view here is breathtaking. The trip on the funicular is extremely steep, but that's exactly what I enjoy. I like it when it's exciting.
Perfect fairy tale for a wedding at 1,322 metres above sea level
Everything worth knowing about the Harder Railway in twelve stations. Exciting tour on the Harder ridge.
Live Swiss folk music. Traditional with "old hands" and lively newcomers.
