The snowy slopes of Harderkulm overlook the town of Interlaken, offering extensive views stretching all the way to the high peaks of west Switzerland's mountain ranges. The easiest way to get a taste of those distant Alpine giants without having to gear up for a serious hike is to take the funicular to this 1,322 m (4,337 ft) summit. Or, if you feel up for a challenge and have the right kind of shoes, climb up the mountain on foot and take the railway back into town. Before you hurry down, visit the summit's castle-like restaurant and take a few snapshots from the lofty viewing platform extending over the side of the mountain.
