The Heimwehfluhbahn (DIH) is a funicular at Interlaken in the Swiss Canton of Bern. It runs to the top of the nearby Heimwehfluh hill at an altitude of 680 metres (2,230 ft) above sea level. The funicular provides access to the hilltop restaurant, an observation tower, an O scale model railway, a children's playground and a bobsleigh run (a second one existed but has since become overgrown and unused).
The funicular, built between 1904 and 1906, has a length of 197 metres (646 ft) and overcomes a vertical distance of 102 metres (335 ft) with a maximum gradient of 69%. There are two wooden cars dating from 1906, operating on a single track of narrow gauge track with a central passing loop. With curtains at the unglazed windows, the line presents an intentionally heritage image. A single journey takes 2 minutes.
