Interlaken: Funicular Ticket to Harder Kulm

2. Interlaken: Funicular Ticket to Harder Kulm

If Interlaken had a king, he would reside on the Harder Kulm. Take a short walk from the Interlaken-Ost railway station to the Harder Kulm Railway valley station. From there, hop on the funicular in Interlaken and climb up the mountainside. Enjoy stunning views of the scenic mountain landscape. Once you ride to the top, check out the viewing platform which is 1,322 meters (!) above sea level. Marvel at the snowy peaks of the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau. Enjoy the spectacular view from the “Two-Lakes- Bridge,” where you can see the sapphire-blue lakes Brienz and Thun. Feel the thrill of standing on top of a glass-bottomed viewing platform. If you look down, you’ll really get to see what 1,322 meters look like. Visit the restaurant on top of the Harder Kulm. Although the restaurant looks like a castle, you won’t need to be a king to enjoy royal service. Relax as you admire the magnificent view of the sun setting behind the mountains.

I really enjoyed this tour and loved the Grindelwald First add on. Seeing the Swiss Alps was such a memorable experience and I particularly loved the mountain carting activity you can do from up there! I would get rid of the bathroom break since I feel it was a waste of time. Before heading to Grindelwald (the first town) you will be taken to Interlaken where you will be given a one hour break to eat or use the bathroom. For me, this was a waste of time when we have to return to this town via train later in the day. Just bring us straight to Grindewald (which has more to do) and allow us to venture around and see Interlaken last. Aside from this, I highly recommend the tour. Sofia was very nice and helpful and she provided so much history on Zurich and the towns. I really enjoyed what she had to say on our ride to the towns.

This is a good tour to get easily to the mountains However this is a partially guided tour even though the train tickets were included in the price The good thing is that we have been able to explore Grindelwald and Interlaken on our own and at our own pace! If you want to escape the busy city life of the city I highly recommend this tour! The explanation provided by Mario and Peter on the bus was very clear!

Best tour I've ever done in my life, it felt like a dream, I've never seen such a beautiful place. Super worth it The guide Lars was super attentive and helped us buy the Monst first tour which was magnificent. I highly recommend purchasing this tour.

I enjoyed this tour. It was worth every minute. We got to explore Interlaken by ourselves. The sceneries are breathtaking. Just one suggestion: please equip your buses with usb charging ports and wi-fi.

Great experience will recommend to anyone who has only two days in Switzerland
