Just getting to this hotel above 2,200 meters is a unique experience on the 'little red choo-choo cog train'.

This is one of the most beautiful settings with a fantastic view over to the Bernese Oberland with Eiger, Moench & Jungfrau. One can walk up here or take the cog railway with steam engines from Brienz. The hotel, the service and the food is excellent, especially for this type of location.
