Stockhorn, Erlenbach im Simmental

#35 of 117 in Outdoors in Canton of Bern
The Stockhorn is a mountain of the Bernese Alps, overlooking the region of Lake Thun in the Bernese Oberland. It is located north of the town of Erlenbach im Simmental.
The Stockhorn is 2190m high and is accessible via cable car from Erlenbach. It has a restaurant at the top and is a good starting point for many hikes. There is good fishing in the two lakes right below the Stockhorn, the Oberstockensee (around 1650m high) and the Hinterstockensee (around 1550m high). There is a subterranean water connection between the two lakes.
From the top the view includes many of the surrounding Alps; the Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, Schreckhorn, along with the valley of the Aare river, Thun and Lake Thun, Interlaken and the Jura Mountains.

  • What can be better than standing on the top of the beautiful Alps and admire the perfect view? Nothing. Well, Stockhorn is a good place for those who adore hiking, mountain lakes and don't love crowdy...  more »
  • With two cable cars you can get to 2,150 m above sea level. The new panoramic cabin to the central station is very nice. The panoramic viewing platform I find a bit small, especially with many visitors. The panoramic restaurant has something for everyone. The view of the mountains and lakes is beautiful!
