A good walk from the First cable car, but well worth it. There is a hotel at the top with a little restaurant, and from the garden at the back, amazing views over Brienzersee

You need to be fairly fit to get here (either from the First cable car or from Schynigge Platte), but it is certainly worth the effort. I would only do it on a clear day, as the views are what makes it so impressive, and if you can't see anything for clouds, then I don't see the point of being... More

We hiked up to Faulhorn after taking the cable car to First. The First-Bachalpsee segment is a fairly easy hike, but you have to climb from there to get to Faulhorn, where we found out that we were not as adjusted to the altitude as we thought. Nevertheless, our reward was an excellent lunch with spectacular views once we arrived.... More

I took a ridge walk from Schynige Platte along to Fulhorn. The views along the way were simply breathtaking. On arrival at Fulhorn, you are treated to two panoramic views of both valleys and mountain ranges either side of you. I continued to walk on to First which took me past a beautiful lake. The whole experience will only take... More

Historic, simple and wholesome accommodation and restaurant near mountain summit. We stayed for acclimatisation but others walk or sleep as holiday highlight. A little strenuous towards end for some from First but scenery & paths good.. Mainly bunkhouse but some bedroom. Book early as popular or just walk up for lunch or refreshments. A special place to stay as the... More

This is describing Faulhorn as a hike and not reviewing the hotel/restaurant (which was closed when we were there anyways). Although the view of the high alps to the south is partially blocked by Reeti's peak and shoulders, the ability to look down to the lakes surrounding Interlaken and up to the Jungfrau and back down to the outskirts of...

We had a long challenging hike up from Grindelwald, but the last hour up and down from Faulhorn was incredible.

We stayed here in July 2013 to break the Schynige Platte - First Hike into two days. Loved the hike (though as someone else mentioned, sunscreen on hot and sunny days is highly recommended, as the hike is rather exposed), but the night at the Faulhorn was average compared to other similar accommodations we stayed in (see my review for...

This is a must do if you are visiting Grindelwald. Depending on how fit you are, you can walk up from Grindelwald (advanced level!), or take the cablecar to First and walk to the Faulhorn from there. On your way you will pass the gorgeous Bachalpsee, the famous mountain lake which offers some amazing views too (Schreckhorn, Matterhorn, Eiger...). The... More
