Description

Just to the left of the bottom station of the Harder Railway is the start of the trail that takes some 2 hours and 50 minutes. The wide path winds up to the Hohbüel pavilion where Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy once enjoyed the stunning views. The steep trail then zigzags up through a dense beech forest, crisscrossing the wide path and passes under the track of the Harder Railway to reach the «Obere Bleiki» larch woods. The trail then follows a steep diagonal ascent, once again passing under the railway track, to a rest spot above the Hardermannli rock face. After about 20 minutes you reach the sunny terrace of the Harder Kulm mountain restaurant where you are rewarded for your efforts by wonderful views as you enjoy coffee and cake. The return to Interlaken takes 8 minutes by funicular railway or about 2 hours on foot.
