Brienz Rothorn Bahn Reviews & Ratings
The best option, in my opinion, is to take the “happy hour” deal late in the day. You only go about halfway up, but it’s SO much cheaper. You will still have beautiful views, and the little restaurant at the stop has some of the best cheese I’ve ever eaten. The cows it comes from are mooing a few meters away! Did I mention this comes with free beer?
We took a half day trip July 2018 off course with steam. Impressive 15 manufactured steam operated locomotives in 3 variants. Max 100 people per train each with 2 carriages. Very slowly 7,5 km / one hour to the top at as much as 25% inclination. Either 150 liter diesel fuel or 400 kilo coal to heat up max 1.200 liter of water. All very impressive.
Great experience (mainly the view). Make sure you be there early (no reservation possible for single seats. CHF 92.-/adult, return ticket (full price).
Very nice trip with a steam engine to the top, The ride itself take's a while! Its a nice long trip with a amazing vieuw over the lake and the other side of the mountain!
It's a joke. The bahn is too slow - 12 km per hour and it takes an hour(!!) to go up. The tickets are very expensive and it's a real waste of time. Don't do there if you don't must.
