At the peak of enjoyment: the Mountain Hotel Rothorn Kulm

The hotel is closed during wintertime and will re-open on June 4, 2022

We are renovating for our guests! From Monday, August 29, 2022, the Mountain Hotel Rothorn Kulm and the outdoor terrace will remain closed until the end of the 2022 season. A small take-away offer and limited seating are available outside. The steam train runs according to the timetable until the end of the season. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Mountain Hotel Rothorn Kulm in its new splendor in 2023.

Is there anything better than letting yourself be spoiled with culinary delights after the eventful steam ride? We are happy to serve you at 2266 m above sea level in our pretty mountain restaurant (approx. 100m next to the train station, ascending path) with an offer that fulfills many wishes: from a quick snack to a cozy aperitif platter to a delicious gourmet menu, you will find everything your heart desires during the day.

In the evening, we will surprise you with our choice half-board dinners or à-la-carte dishes, all accompanied by wines that go well with the high altitude, too. Experience the unique peace and quiet far above the daily hustle and bustle, enjoy the breathtaking view of the Bernese Oberland’s peaks, and then why not stay overnight? Our cosy rooms and over 100 beds await you.

Stay overnight, and away from it all (from June 4 to August 28, 2022)

Thanks to the unique location of our Mountain Hotel, all rooms offer you an unforgettable view, whether facing north or south. The cosy rooms all come with cold and hot running water, as well as toilets and showers out in the hall. Rooms with beds for small children are available to families with up to two children.
