We were in Interlaken for a few days and wanted a good place to hike. Harder Kulm offered beautiful views of the town and mountains. It had just rained, so the trail was a bit slippery. It probably took us 3 hours to climb it and that was with frequent stops to take pictures. Plus, we are not frequent hikers.At... More

I didn't. Sprained my ankle as the path particularly going down is slippery, even with all the right equipment. The view was good but there are nicer ones with better facilities in the area.

The Harder Kulm is one of the smaller Excursions you could do if you don"t have much time and it is situated halfway down the main street of Interlaken. We had the 6day Jungfrau pass on holiday which entitled us free use of the trains,gondellas,cableways and boats in the region as well as free trips up to the top of... More

Took the train and reached Harder Kulm in 10-15 minutes. The views from the top were simply amazing. It not that high but worth a vsist. One can see both the lakes from... More

Harder Kulm is near Interlaken. There is Funicular which takes you to the top. You can enjoy stunning views around Interlaken. You can see Lake Brienz and Lake Thun from the top. There is a restaurant as well. It is a nice spot to take photos of the views around the valley near Interlaken.

You can climb the steep hillside, or take the funicular railway. Either way, the views from the top are breathtaking. Interlaken is often called the most scenic place in Europe and for good reason. The railway is an unusual one. Two similar trains are connected by a long, steel cable wound around a wheel and so arranged that the carriages... More

If you are young... don't go with the funicular... walk up... it's much nicer:) If you do use the funicular up, use the great lunch specials i think from 11.30 to 1.30 or something - makes lunch well cheaper. It can get very crowded up there. But again, very nice views over Thun Lake and Brienz Lake, stunning. If you... More
