The Niederhorn is a peak of the Emmental Alps in the Bernese Oberland near Beatenberg. It is the peak farthest west in the Güggis ridge.

Today the summit can be reached by the Seilbahnen Beatenberg-Niederhorn, a more modern gondola lift that runs from the village of Beatenberg, where it connects with the Thunersee–Beatenberg Bahn, a funicular with connections to the shipping services on Lake Thun.A 89m high steel lattice antenna tower was built near the restaurant in 1975.

  • The Niederhorn is worth a trip, summer and winter, to hiking, snowshoe hiking or skiing. The trip from Beatenberg with the orbit of the group not too long. Once up, you can enjoy a fantastic view on the surrounding mountains and Lake Thun (or, depending on the weather, the sea of fog).

  • Beautiful mountain for not challenging hikes. Especially lovely in the morning. Sometimes some peaceful and majestic Capricorns are to watch, they bask directly at the hiking trails, to parts, but do not disturb by considerate walkers. The views include Eiger, monk Blüemlisalp, Stockhorn, Virgin, Schreckörner, Wetterhorn in South and the seven stallions and the plateau to the North. One good bewandern the flat side in the South or the steep northern flank kan.
