It’s been chugging away since 1892: the Brienz Rothorn Railway puffs past Alpine meadows, streams, rocks and through sparse forests above the tree line to the Brienzer Rothorn at 2351 metres above sea level. During the one-hour ride (7.6 kilometres), a breathtaking panorama over the imposing Bernese Oberland opens up – realise your dreams!

Angebot Vollmond Dinner

Full Moon Dinner

On these special evenings, we take you up to the Rothorn with our steam locomotive. Experience the very special atmosphere already during the train ride: Night falls, the world darkens. Only the glow of the large, round moon serves as light in the sky. In the mountain hotel Rothorn Kulm, you will enjoy a delicious three-course meal.


Steam Sausage Excursion Train

Unique and certainly the high point to remember of any holiday. From early June we’re cooking! Wednesdays and Saturdays are Sausage Laggard days and this opportunity is not to be missed. At the intermediate stop at Planalp the locomotive-driver will serve sausages from the locomotive’s original steam kettle.


Rothorn Night

With our special offer, you travel from Brienz to Rothorn Kulm at 4.36 pm. After arriving at the mountain hotel Rothorn Kulm, you will enjoy a welcome drink and spend the night in a cosy room. The next day, you will strengthen your strength at the breakfast buffet before taking a leisurely drive back to Brienz.

Admittedly, it's a strange idea.
But it has been working since 1892.

For almost 130 years, the Brienz Rothorn Railway has been writing its eventful history, which has been marked by many ups and downs and remains a lifetime of fond memories for generations of passengers.
