Brienzer Rothorn – Lucerne’s highest peak

At an altitude of 2,351 metres, it towers above all the other peaks and makes a great destination for day trips any time of year

The Rothorn can be ascended all year round by taking the aerial cableway from Sörenberg to Schönenboden. The panoramic views at the top are spectacular. If you look towards the Lake Lucerne Region, you see the Pilatus, Rigi and Titlis. Look westwards and you will spot the Chasseral in the Jura, while the Bernese Alps with the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau massif are to the east. With a little luck you will come across ibex, chamois and the local birdlife.
