The trip up can be roughly split into 3 parts, you first pass by a "foresty" area, a mid area of lake and mountains, and the top where snow capped mountains awaits. Sit near where you enter the seats if you can. The view are...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I’m planning to visit Interlaken, Switzerland for my first time ever, and I don’t have much information about how to get to the top of Brienz Rothorn Bahn, I will have a car, and just checked Google Maps and it offers a route for the car to the top of the mount and takes half an hour, do you advise me to go with this option, or choose the noisy steam pricy train ? If the answer is train, why ? And what are the steps to reach that train with my car ? Thank you so much for your help.
