The Faulhorn is a mountain of the Bernese Alps, located between Lake Brienz and Grindelwald in the Bernese Oberland. The summit is 2,681 metre high and can be reached by several trails.

The mountain is split between the municipalities of Iseltwald and Grindelwald, with the summit located on the boundary between the two.[2]

Since 1830, a hotel is located on the very summit.
