The Stockhorn is a mountain of the Bernese Alps, overlooking the region of Lake Thun in the Bernese Oberland. It is located north of the town of Erlenbach im Simmental.
The Stockhorn is 2,190 m (7,190 ft) high and is accessible via cable car from Erlenbach. It has a restaurant at the top and is a good starting point for many hikes. There is good fishing in the two lakes right below the Stockhorn, the Oberstockensee (around 1,650 m [5,410 ft] high) and the Hinterstockensee (around 1,550 m [5,090 ft] high). There is a subterranean water connection between the two lakes.
From the top the view includes many of the surrounding Alps; the Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, Schreckhorn, along with the valley of the Aare river, Thun and Lake Thun, Interlaken and the Jura Mountains.
There's a hiking trail (T1) called Stockhorn leading to the summit.
The nearest mountain hut is Berggasthaus Oberstockenalp located 745m/2 444ft WSW of the summit.
