The Allmendhubelbahn was brought into service in 1912, in order to simplify trade with other communes. It was soon used by many tourists and mountain hikers, and in the winter by skiiers. It begins in Muerren (1,650 m above sea level) with a maximum upward gradient of 61% up to the Allmendhubel at 1,907 m.
In 1999 the old red cars were replaced by new panoramic cars (name?).
