The Gelmer Funicular is a funicular railway in the canton of Bern, Switzerland. Are you looking for things to do in Switzerland and also ready for an adrenaline rush? Then watch this video !!!
With an inclination of up to 106% (no, that’s not a typo), this funicular is the steepest of its kind in Europe. It was originally built to transport heavy construction materials for the Gelmer dam, however, nowadays it is open for adventure-seeking hikers.
It’s not that high speed as it looks, although it’s just that the filming is high speed.
It’s a cog railroad, slow and steady and very safe.
In a blink, the funicular makes its way to the Gelmer valley 1860 meter above sea level.
It’s a Great adventure ride for families and anyone who enjoys glacier-covered mountain views without the effort.
There’s just one more thing: to reach the funicular you have to cross the Handeck suspension bridge, which hangs some 70 metres above the Handeck Gorge.
