The romance of steam

May 2006

Dream of steam - in the Bernese Oberland

Dream of steam ? In the Bernese Oberland there are several Swiss mountains called Rothorn, but there is only one near Brienz, on the beautiful lake Brienz, in the Bernese Oberland. And only here, 15 km from the world-famous resort of Interlaken, is its ascent so romantic and impressive ? thanks to the Brienz Rothorn Railway, Switzerland?s oldest steam cog railway. It has climbed Rothorn Kulm hissing, huffing and puffing since 1892. You try conquering 1,678 meters of altitude differential without getting short of breath! Your reward for riding with us is a spectacular mountain panorama, the hospitality of the Rothorn Kulm Hotel and a wide selection of incomparable hikes. Getting back down on the Brienz Rothorn Railway is as safe and reliable as getting to the top. This activity is always a favourite for all kinds of groups.
