One of our favorite day-trips in Brienz! Come to enjoy the view of the crystal clear water od the Brienzer Lake and the incredible view of more than 650 peaks around the Top of the Brienzer Rothorn. The historical Steam Locomotive at the Brienzer Rothorn starts operating in 1892, taking about one hour from Brienz to the top. From the Top of the Brienzer Rothorn, you can extend your day trip to Sörenberg, located at the UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch Region.
