Walk, admire and savour
Offering a variety of short and longer trails, the Brienzer Rothorn is ideal for both seasoned mountaineers and relaxed hikers. Those who like it comfortable may wish to arrive by steam train. But the peak trail connecting the mountain station at 2244 metres above sea level with the Rothorn’s summit at 2350 meters is easily manageable for less athletic visitors too.
And the panorama from the top is truly something else: Provided the weather plays along, you have an unobstructed view of everything from Central Switzerland’s Alps, including Pilatus, Rigi and Titlis, and the mighty four-thousand-metre-plus peaks of the Bernese Alps, above all Eiger Mönch and Jungfrau, all the way to the Chasseral in the Swiss Jura Mountains. On a clear day you should be able to see no fewer than 693 peaks – count them! This view alone makes the ride on our steam train worthwile.
A small request: When hiking our trails, please show respect for the animals and your fellow visitors and refrain from littering.
And a word of advice: Rothorn area hikes are no mere strolls. Trails marked in red and white are only for hikers in good shape equipped with weatherproof clothing and appropriate footwear, i.e. hiking boots!
