Tour description

The trail leads from Interlaken Ost railway station along the River Aare to the valley station of the Harder Railway and in many, sometimes very steep, turns through the Bleiki forest to the Falkenfluh - a lookout point located above the Hardermannli rock face. The rock below the railings is practically perpendicular; Interlaken can be seen in a bird's eye view over the magnificent summits of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The well-developed mountain trail then continues in a pleasant climb over wide Alpine meadows, with a view of Lake Thun and the pyramid-shape of the Niesen. Past the bustle on the terrace of the Harder Kulm mountain restaurant, the wide panorama trail leads to Harderbahn summit station.


Variant A: (D) Harder Kulm can also serve as a starting point for a mountain hike on the Augstmatthorn. The route leads through the Harder ridge to the Roteflue and through the Suggiture to the top of Augstmatthorn. The way back is on the same trail; the total hiking time Harder-Augstmatthorn Harder is 7 hours.


Mountain hike with some exposed sections. The terrain off the marked trail is very steep and exposed, especially above the Hardermanndli rock face – DO NOT leave the trail!
Normal hiking gear, hiking boots with good soles and walking sticks help with the ascent.
Late April to mid-October.
