Want to learn more about the history of the Brienz Rothorn Railway and take a look around the workshop?

Locomotives have been stomping and steaming, squeaking and smoking on the Brienzer Rothorn since 1892. Switzerland's only steam-driven cog railway was considered a pioneering – but also crazy – achievement when it entered operation. These days, the main challenge consists in getting the locomotives to climb the mountain at full steam on a daily basis.

The hour-long tour of the Brienz Rothorn Railway depot sheds a light on what that takes and the preparations that are needed.
