Niederhorn, Beatenberg

4.6
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. From its summit you can see Lake Thun and the entire Bernese Alps.An aerial cable car to the summit was completed in 1946 with a restaurant and children's playground at the top. 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.

    Either on foot or by cable car to the Niederhorn climb a day of Sun, is spectacular! Walking options are many and varied, there is for all the tastes and difficulty. We climbed from Beatenberg to the top and made the road through the mountains to then down the Valley in the Justistal. It took us about 6/7 hours, clear who actually strolling and stopping at a farm to eat a Bratwurst with bread;).

    A place to take the time to visit and feel like Heidi in the Swiss mountains. Paragliding is also an option;-)  more »

    Not a great fan of cable cars but it was definitely worth it when we got to the top. Scenery was stunning and although there was a lot of people about it was very peaceful.  more »
