With its central location, the mountain with the wonderful outlook also makes an ideal start and finish point for panoramic hikes. One beautiful route takes you from the Harder Kulm, across the ridge and on to the spectacular Augstmatthorn via the "Suggiture". If you are looking for a sporting challenge, you can make the 750 m ascent of the Harder on foot from Interlaken. The ascent can be somewhat demanding and takes one to two hours, depending on your fitness level. Many local people use their nearby mountain as a training venue. If you would rather take things easy, though, a short, 12-stage circular path not far from the Panorama Restaurant covers part of the Hardergrat ridge. Along the way, you will learn more about the Harderbahn funicular. Either way, a visit to the Harder Kulm is a great way to experience the nature of the peaks.
