Might not be as well known, but a little cable train takes you up the mountain for breathtaking views of Interlaken. Also has hiking trails, a restaurant and a platform view point from up there. This cable car station is very close to the Interlaken OST station.

The funicular is a bit expensive but worth it for the excellent views from the top. Could look down on paragliders as well as most of Interlaken. Hotel seems good although we only had drinks.

Without question, the best view of Interlaken is from the top of Harder Kulm. Basically, you can take a 15-minute cog train ride up to the top of the mountain for a view of Interlaken, the river that runs through the city, the surrounding mountains, and its neighboring lakes. Friendly tip... If you show your room card when purchasing tickets,... More

Rather than going on cruise, it may be good to go up Harder Kulm to get an overview of the whole town with Lake Brien on one side and Lake Thun on the other. There is a few food outlets at Harder Kulm which you can sit down to enjoy some drinks while admiring the scenery. My B&B gave me... More

Be sure to take the incline rail car to the visit the mountain top center of Harder Kulm. Situated high above the town of Interlaken with a spectacular view of the city and the surrounding alpine mountains. There is a gift shop and good restaurant where one can watch the hand gliders fly about.

I took the trolley up the mountain, though I would like to hike next visit. I think hike can be accomplished in half days time. The view was gorgeous. Seriously gorgeous. There is a restaurant on the top - didn't eat there. There is also a souvenir shop. Be careful of your cameras. A woman dropped hers while on the... More

We hopped on one of the last funiculars up to Harder Kulm after a disappointing overcast day on top of the Jungfrau. At this point, the clouds down in the valley were clearing and we could see Harder Kulm with no problem from Interlaken. After the shock of having to spend almost 200 francs to do the Jungfrau (this was... More

If you aren't afraid of heights, this is a great experience. The funicular cable car takes about ten minutes to reach the summit and then you have another ten minute walk to the top. The railway itself is actually called the Harderbahn. There are only two cars and they pass midway on the journey. The lower station can become quite... More
