We reached First by gondola and found the hike to the top of Faulhorn easy enough (even at age 77). The views on the way up as well as from the top make every effort worthwhile. Enjoyed Roesti and sunnyside up eggs as a reward.

We ended up for the night here at it was nice to "bag a peak", even though no technical skills are required!! It was a fun hike and the mountain offers incredible views on a clear day. Very worthwhile and great exercise.

Nice hike, passing along cows, nice lakes and the view from the top is priceless, especially after 1-2 beers at the restaurant to replenish the water levels.

The famous old inn perched atop Faulhorn is worth at least one visit in a lifetime. The hike is 2-3 hours from the top of the First Lift and involves steep but well-maintained switchbacks. The views from the top of the mountain are spectacular.

Stunning views over Interlaken's two lakes and the encircling snow capped mountains await you after an exhilarating climb to this summit. This walk is not for the faint hearted but is worth the effort. It can be reached by walking from Schynige Platte; First or...More

Climbing the Faulhorn is the easiest peak to hike in the region. Must be in reasonable shape if approaching from First, but the trail is well maintained. Tremendous 360 views. Get the chocolate cake ( at the restaurant on top ) as a reward for...More
