    Take the extra few minutes to go to the top at Faulhorn and look over the other side. Sweeping views of the area on a clear day. You can see for what seems like a hundred kilometers. Brilliant beyond words.

    It has something rustic when you have made it after the strenuous climb and you can relax here.
    Nice people up there, very good food and a beautiful view can be found here.

    The Faulhorn viewpoint offers an overwhelming view of all the mountain giants in the Bernese Oberland. In contrast, the view sweeps across the Prealps, the Emmental, Mitteland and the Jura to the Black Forest in Baden and the Alsatian Vosges. Seven Swiss lakes are visible: east of Lake Zug and Lake Lucerne, at the foot of Lake Brienzer and Lake Thun and west of Lake Biel, Lake Murten and Lake Neuchâtel.

    The Berghotel Faulhorn (meaning: rotten rock), 2,681 m, is the oldest mountain hotel in Switzerland. From up here you can enjoy an overwhelming 360 ° panorama. The mountain hotel has survived almost unchanged since its construction in 1830. It was an admirable achievement at that time and still deserves our respect today.

    The view from the Faulhorn on Lake Brienz is unique with a clear view!

    From Grindelwald it is quite a long ascent, if you like it easier you can come from First on quite easy paths - at the end it gets a little steeper again.

    Even if the ascent is the icing on the cake at the end, a visit is worthwhile
