2'350 meters above sea level
Full steam ahead to Rothorn Kulm.
Special offers: evening rices, steamed-sausage special, Train and Breakfast etc. Several Swiss mountains are called Rothorn, but there is only one near Brienz, on the beautiful lake Brienz, in the Bernese Oberland.
And only here is its ascent as romantic and impressive - thanks to the Brienz Rothorn Railway, Switzerland's oldest steam cog railway. It has climbed Rothorn Kulm hissing, huffing and puffing since 1892. You try conquering 1'678 metres of altitude differential without getting short of breath!
Your reward for riding with us is a spectacular mountain panorama, the hospitality of the Rothorn Kulm Hotel and a wide selection of incomparable hikes. Getting back down on the Brienz Rothorn Railway is as safe and reliable as getting to the top. No wonder we're the favourite of families, groups, and school classes of any age.
