Brienz Rothorn Bahn is a MUST when you visit Brienz.
You will go up to Rothorn on an original track steam train. The journey is magnificent - through some of the most beautiful nature scenes.
And the steam train itself is a treat.
Rothorn is stunning!!!!! And beautiful!!!

The cog railway is a must for steam buffs. The view from the mountain is also excellent and it was a great mornings excursion.

A journey into the past with the steam rack railway to get there. Takes about an hour and starts from Brienz an hour and a bit from Luzern by Zentralbahn train. Buy a Luzern Pass and the Zentralbahn train is free whilst the Brienz Rothorn train is half price.

Some of the locomotives date from the 1890s and there are some new ones (still steam) from the 1990s. One does not have to be a steam fanatic to enjoy this trip.

The views are fabulous and a very good day out from Luzern.

make sure you sit on the left on ascent and vise versa coming down. A full camera is a must. a supereb experience once ytou get used to being pushed up a mountain by a little steam engine. The views from the top are breath taking. a very nice restaurant with a teraace that looks out over Lake Brienz.
make sure you go into the restaurant and look out of the windows to see the other side.

my first trip on a steam train ever.... it was warm, clear sight, and the trains were run in triples... so many people, but well worth every minute of it.
