How to travel to the Brienzer Rothorn

You first need to travel to Brienz. There you will switch to the steam train.

The trip in detail

Brienz can be reached by car, by train (20 minutes from Interlaken, 90 minutes from Lucerne) or by boat from Interlaken. From the train station, you only need to cross the street to reach the steam train station. From the boat dock, it's about 2 minutes on foot to the steam train station.

You best sit on the left when departing from Brienz to get the majority of good views, although there are good views on the right as well.
