Rothorn Bahn Brienz

Brienz Rothorn Railway is now open for the 2020 summer season!

‘It chugs, steams, screeches and smokes: Switzerlands’s only daily steam rack railway has thrilled passengers since 1892. Come aboard, the Brienz Railway will take you to the top.’

Brienz Rothorn Railway Mountain Station at 2244m

There are several trails both to and from the mountain station including that from Planalp. The peak trail itself connects the mountain station with the Rothorn’s summit at 2350m and is within the capability of the less athletic.‘And the panorama from the top is truly something else: Provided the weather plays along, you have an unobstructed view of everything from Central Switzerland’s Alps, including Pilatus, Rigi and Titlis, and the mighty four-thousand-metre-plus peaks of the Bernese Alps, above all Eiger Mönch and Jungfrau, all the way to the Chasseral in the Swiss Jura Mountains. On a clear day you should be able to see no fewer than 693 peaks – count them! This view alone makes the ride on our steam train worthwhile.’
