Owner description: At an altitude of 1,322 m, the Harder Kulm offers the best view of Interlaken, Eiger Mönch and Jungfrau as well as the Thun and Lake Brienz. The palatial restaurant and the Two Lakes Bridge viewing platform are an enticing place to spend time. The cable car, not far from the Interlaken Ost train station on the Harder, has been operational for more than 100 years. The Talstation building has remained without major alterations to the original design as it was in the early years after the turn of the century, and is one of Interlaken's listed buildings. For connoisseurs and those in search of a view, the Harder railway takes just ten minutes to reach the Interlaken Hausberg. The 1,449-metre mountain journey largely goes through the forest, surmounting 731 metres in altitude at an incline of 64%.

If you do only one thing in Interlaken, this is it. Take the cogwheel up, hike, and have a meal at the restaurant. It will be a highlight of your trip.

Harder Klum is a great stop whilst in Interlaken. The peak offers wonderful vistas of both lakes Thun and Brienz and the town of Interlaken and beyond towards the Jungfrau, Eiger and Monch peaks. We went there over sunset as the lighting is great for pictures. One has to take a funicular up from across the Aare river and then walk a short distance from the higher station to the restaurant and the views beyond.

We had left our stroller at the base station and collected it upon return.

I would strongly recommend a trip up to Harder Klum to enjoy the beauty of the Bernese Oberland.

A funicular railway situated very close to our hotel (Royal St George). Lovely ride through forests to the summit where there is a restaurant with numerous activities scheduled throughout the year.
Had a very nice ice cream but the main attraction for me was the spectacular views over Interlaken and the lakes.
Do pay it a visit.

We visited harder kulm on a sunny day of June. From Interlaken Ost train station is a short walk (5 min max) to the funiculair. The ride to the top takes 8 minutes and it costs 38 CHF return ticket, 19 one way tickets and half price for kids or for those who have the half fare card. Reduced prices are also for those having railpass or interrail 26 chf /14chf.
You can also go hiking - it takes about 2h 20 to reach the top.
The views from the top are great being able to see both lakes.
There is a restaurant and sunbeds that you can use.
Prices are around 20 chf for a rosti, 25 for a burger with fries, and above 30 for stakes or other meat dishes.

Everywhere in this region gives you spectacular views of mountains (something I don’t get in Norfolk, UK!) and this must be the steepest of funicular railways! Views from the top of course and refreshments too. Interesting building at the top (Restaurant) and a walkway over the drop. Views of Interlaken and Lakes Brienz and Thun.
