Mountain excursions around Lake Thun

There are many options for exploring the mountains around Lake Thun. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the deep blue lake and the surrounding summits. In summer and winter, the Stockhorn inspires not just fishermen, but connoisseurs too. Check out the possibilities and spend a wonderful evening, complete with fabulous views. Its pyramid-like shape makes the Niesen immediately recognisable. In summer, the Berghaus Niesen Kulm offers a cultural programme of music and other highlights. The Niesen also has much to attract sportspeople and families. There is another excursion destination – the Niederhorn – on the other side of Lake Thun. There’s a lot to do on the Niederhorn in both summer and winter. Hiking, wildlife watching, scooter biking, sledging, skiing, snowshoe trekking – what would you like to experience?

Mountain railway excursions from Interlaken

A 10-minute railway ride transports you up the Harder Kulm, Interlaken’s local mountain, to enjoy peerless views of the city and the Jungfrau region beyond, where the snow-capped peaks include the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. On the other side of Interlaken is the Schynige Platte, which can be reached by historic steam train. Once at the top, indulge in reminiscence and enjoy the panoramic views of Interlaken and the lakes of Thun and Brienz. There are also alpine plant and flower species to admire at the Botanical Alpine Garden.

Full steam ahead to the summit above Brienz


Brienzer Rothorn

The evocative ascent of the Brienzer Rothorn via Planalp takes about an hour, taking in meadows, forests and dramatic rock faces. Along the way, expect to see grazing cattle and, if you’re lucky, a nimble chamois or a majestic ibex. A breathtaking panorama awaits at the summit. The turquoise waters of Lake Brienz, the colourful flowers and the impressive mountain backdrop make for some beautiful photo opportunities.

Hiking paradise with a 360° panorama

The hiking possibilities in the Interlaken holiday zone are as varied as the region itself, but all have one thing in common – the incredible views. Visitors can conquer a number of mountain peaks under their own steam. Once at the summit, prepare for a special surprise: you will be repaid with a stunning aspect of the mountainscape and the lakes of the Bernese Oberland.

Panoramic view of the lake

For a more laid-back experience, take in the uniquely panoramic sights from the level of the lake. A stroll along the shores of lakes Thun or Brienz is a pleasure at any time of year. The lakeside path from Spiez to Faulensee via Lake Thun is especially popular. Another path tracing Lake Brienz from Iseltwald to the Giessbach Falls is also recommended; along the way, you never lose sight of the spectacular Brienzergrat. The panoramic views are also ever-present on the many and varied themed paths and adventure trails of the region. Discover your own favourite viewpoint in the Holiday Region Interlaken.

“The Morgenberghorn is my favourite mountain in the Bernese Oberland. Do you know why? Because I enjoy the 360° panorama from its summit. Up here I can see Lake Thun, Lake Brienz and even the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. When I make it to the top of the mountain, I am always proud that I have conquered the mountain under my own steam.”
