This was one of my best hike. Hiked from First all the way to Faulhorn. 8.5 KM and the views along the way was amazing. It surely did take our breath away. Note recommend to carry water and picnic lunch along with you. As you reach the top you can have a perfect lunch break along with the views.

The famous old inn perched atop Faulhorn is worth at least one visit in a lifetime. The hike is 2-3 hours from the top of the First Lift and involves steep but well-maintained switchbacks. The views from the top of the mountain are spectacular.

Stunning views over Interlaken's two lakes and the encircling snow capped mountains await you after an exhilarating climb to this summit. This walk is not for the faint hearted but is worth the effort. It can be reached by walking from Schynige Platte; First or Bussalp. The full hike from Schynige Platte to either First or Bussalp will take 6... More

Climbing the Faulhorn is the easiest peak to hike in the region. Must be in reasonable shape if approaching from First, but the trail is well maintained. Tremendous 360 views. Get the chocolate cake ( at the restaurant on top ) as a reward for your efforts.

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
