Let's go to the Interlaken OST. Take the train from platform 4 to Lucerne. Get off at Brienz Station in about 30 minutes. It is quick to take the train to Brienz Station, but you can also take a cruise from Interlaken East Station. In this case, it takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Just behind the Brienz SBB train station, a steam train to Brienger Rothhorn awaits. After buying a ticket at the ticket office, let's get on the train.

As the steam locomotive goes up, Lake Brienz comes into view.

​There are two restaurants at the top, and there is a cable car going down the other side, which is not very suitable for Korean tourists. It is recommended to take the return train to Brienz.
