Bad experience at the Valentine Dinner 02/14/2020, Panoramarestaurant
Feb. 2020
Valentine dinner at the top of the mountain - why not? We booked the valentine dinner to make this event unforgettable but it ended up in a full disappointment.

As for a valentine dinner you could certainly be expecting something special bud these guys, with all due respect, didn't show any creativity in their set up. No ambience, poor food quality and worst of all was the vine - it had cork and sadly wise there was no replacement to be considered, that made it better as for the wine. Well - what more could you expect? Definitely more for the price of CHF 79.00 per person. Drinks were charged (water, wine and coffee etc.) additionally .
This was a full night mare and we were supper unhappy about everything that night. We reported this issue the day after and got little understanding by the management (executive Director) of the Stockhornbergbahnen AG. We asked for a refund but didn’t get any positive reaction, which is completely inacceptable after all this bad experience we had with them. This made our Valentine dinner unforgettable, indeed. For anyone considering spending their time and money up there, we strongly recommend not to expect too much from their services. What so ever, Good luck. Caring is sharing volks.

Beautiful trip
May 2019
The Stockhorn was covered by our Bernese Oberland pass so we thought we would visit. Took the train from Spiez a short ride and when you get off you can either get a bus to the Stockhorn entry or walk. We decided to walk, it took about 15 minutes through the village. You travel up the first cable car then find over the first mountain a panorama opens out with a bowl shaped area with a fishing lake. We got off and walked around the lake there are barbecue areas and picnic tables. Different walks to suit all capabilities. You can then either walk or climb the next rise or use the cable car again to get to the highest point. There you will have fantastic views toward the eiger Mönch and Jungfrau and beyond, and towards thun the opposite way. For walkers you can start longer walks from there, they were closed when we were there in May because still had snow lying. There are a couple of restaurants if you want food but lots of families there with picnics.

Quiet and beautiful place
Jul. 2019 • Friends
What can be better than standing on the top of the beautiful Alps and admire the perfect view? Nothing.
Well, Stockhorn is a good place for those who adore hiking, mountain lakes and don't love crowdy places. It seems this place is not really popular as I didn't see there thousands of tourists like on other tops that I visited in Switzerland. And this is what I liked.

Quiet Mountain to visit
Aug. 2018 • Couples
We took the train from Spiez to the nearest stop, thereupon it was a 15 minute walk through the town to the cable car base station.

Apart from a few other visitors, the cable car was almost empty to the middle station, and also the second cable car to the top station. Great views were afforded in the cars.

I don't know what other times of the year, but middle of summer and this mountain was almost deserted, just a handful of people at the summit restaurant.

We walked through the tunnel to see the views of Lake Thun, and also walked to the summit for great views all around the area.

We decided to walk to the middle station, and apart from 1 other family we met along the way, we had the track and slopes to ourselves (and the cows).

It made a change being in a nice location but away from the crowds and worth a visit.

Great views near Thun
Jul. 2018 • Couples
Stockhorn is a spectacular mountain peak near Thun/Interlaken. You can reach it by hiking or by cable car from Erlenbach. First cable car takes you to the Hinterstockensee lake. From here you take another one (smaller) to the top. The price for a return tiket is 58 CHF for adults. There are discounts for halfcard, season tickets, AG holders, children.
You have plenty hiking options and the views from the top are amazing. You can see the 2 small lakes (Hinterstockensee and Oberstockensee) as well as Thun lake and the mountains nearby.
There is a restaurant at the top and several viewing platforms.

Stunning views
Jun. 2018 • Solo
One of the few mountains I had not been up in the Interlaken area. Not disappointed. Reached via 2 cable cars, the views from the top are breath taking. One side you look down Lake Thun towards Interlaken & the mountains around the Jungfrau, the other towards Thun & Bern. Besides walking up/down, there is also the chance to bungee jump from a cable car!

Bungee Jumping at Interlaken Switzerland
Jun. 2018 • Solo
I couldn't have asked for a better first Bungee Jump experience. Entire team,guides,instructors at Stockhorn Interlaken were extremely professional. They clearly love their job and this was shown from the moment they arrived to pick me at Interlaken OST train station in their Mercedes van.

To the jump - I jumped on the 12th June afternoon and the experience was incredible! To be honest i was little scared before the jump( specially when i had been seeing other group mates jumping in front of me for 45 minutes & I was in queue waiting for my turn".) .My instructor told me that i jumped perfectly during demo jump so i need not to worry. Before jump,she also advised me to TURN OFF my mind for couple of minutes and just live the moment. I exactly did the same and it turned out to be an amazing life time experience. I didn't feel even a small discomfort to my body. Now my fear for Bungee Jumping has gone and i want to jump again from the tallest building of world. Research says that "adventure activities" are more about dealing with mental stress than physical stress" & from my experience i can say that "it is absolutely true"!

1 Important learning which Bungee Jumping has taught me- Sometimes in life our biggest weaknesses is that we have a tendency to think too much and over analyze things before we make a decision. What I learnt from bungee jumping, is that the longer you wait to take the leap, the more time you have to make excuses and convince yourself to back out. Sometimes in life you just have to take that leap of faith. Close your eyes, jump and everything will work out.

If you're having second thoughts about doing it, just do it! It's a memory I will have for the rest of my life.

10/10 experience and would 100% recommend Bungee with Stackhorn Interlaken team

Excellent day out
Aug. 2017 • Couples
We took a cable car up Stockhorn at 9.20 as we had reserved the breakfast buffet in the restaurant at the summit. There was plenty of choice, with cereals, different breads, croissants, cheeses, cold meats, preserves, yoghurts etc. There was rosti and scrambled egg available as a cooked option and plenty of fruit juices, tea and coffee. We thought the cost of CHF20 was reasonable, considering the high price of everything in Switzerland, and the breakfast with stunning views as an accompaniment was just what we hoped for. I would definitely recommend the breakfast. We then walked up to the summit for 360 degree views.
We left the cable car half-way down the mountain at the mid station and walked round the lake. A lovely way to burn off some of the calories! The walk was only a little steep at the beginning and end. We then had drinks at the restaurant there, again drinking in the stunning views.
The cable car isn't cheap, but we had the Bernese Oberland travel pass and so we had free access to all the trains, lake steamers and cable cars. This was an excellent decision to buy as it saved us a lot of money over the 10 days.

Great hiking paths and amazing scenery
Aug. 2017 • Couples
We got the cable car to the top and walked back down - hard on the knees and some of the paths we chose were steep, but a great day out. Fab 360 views from the top and a lovely wild flower station. There is a great variety of paths you can choose to climb or descend - some a bit rocky and steep, others gentler, forested or meadow, some more child/senior friendly than others. The middle station is another option if you don't want to walk all the way. There is also a lovely cafe at the middle station, recommended for simple meals. There are two lakes for fishing part way up. A great day out.

Nice but expensive
Jun. 2017 • Friends
It's a well run operation and of course the views are excellent from the top with massive vistas of mountains all around and beautiful lake below.

But €58 return is pretty expensive for what you get.
