Hi Barkha,

The Gelmer funicular leaves near a bus stop called 'Handegg, Gelmerbahn': this allows you to find the exact trip in the timetable. It's easier to reach from Interlaken (about 1h20) than from Lucerne (about 1h50 to 2h15). You'll first travel to Meiringen by train, and then change to the bus.

Details about the funicular can be found at the Grimselwelt website.
