Get swept away in the past with a trip to the summit of Brienzer Rothorn top with Brienz Rothorn Bahn, a 124-year-old steam locomotive. The track is 7.6 km (4.7 m) long, and the train will take you through a typical Swiss landscape of forests, meadows (complete with grazing cattle) and mountains tops. Once you have climbed up to the top station at 2,244 m (7,362 ft), you can get a Swiss meal in the restaurant as you drink in the mountainous peaks around you.

  • Slowly increase the altitude while looking at Lake Brienz. It was an hour to the end point and it was very quick to see the spectacular view. If you climb it for about 20 minutes, you will reach the top. The view from there is also beautiful, so it's a good idea to extend your legs.

  • we climbed in August 2019. We arrived soon in Brienz to catch the 08:36am train, which has a much better price than the rest of the trains. Still, the ticket cost us 53 o I/V. It goes up slowly for 1 h to 2300 meters in height. Above all, even being August, it was cold, so I recommend a jacket and long pants, in addition to trekking shoes. The staff at Rothron Bahn are very professional and friendly. Everything has an idyllic look in this country called Switzerland. Once you get to the top, there is a restaurant and amazing views. 1h upand and another hour of exact descent. There are people walking down. If you are a little fit and you like nature and you wear good shoes, I recommend it.
