The Harder Kulm is a small mountain in Interlaken that offers an excellent view of the city and also has a privileged view of the Jungfrau, Mönch, Eiger, Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. The quick and easy accessibility from Interlaken and the reasonable price make a visit to Harder Kulm highly recommended for every trip to Switzerland and especially to the Jungfrau region.
If you drive through this part of Switzerland, the ideal vantage point is to see the three mountains up close.
The ride with the funicular takes only 8 minutes and takes you from Interlaken (568 m) to the 1’322 m high summit. Despite its modest height, the funicular saves up to 64% of the height difference and crosses seven bridges and a tunnel.
Immediately after your arrival you can see the first panoramic shots of the famous trilogy (Jungfrau, Mönch and Eiger). After the first pictures we continue on a completely flat panoramic path, which leaves us in five minutes in front of its famous restaurant, a beautiful building whose roof is visible from Interlaken and the surrounding area in the form of a red pagoda.
And right next to it, a platform that goes a few meters into the void allows us an impressive view of the three big mountains as well as of the lakes. The panorama is extraordinary and it is difficult not to move your head constantly to admire such a beautiful environment.
Right next to the platform a narrow and steep path leads into the forest to reach Interlaken in only 2 hours.
Next to the restaurant there is a snack bar where excellent dishes are served, which can be ideal for a sunset dinner.
In fact it is the perfect time because the sun is not in front of the camera and the evening light is the best for photography.
The sunsets on the Harder Kulm are among the best in Switzerland.
