Took the cable car from Beatenberg up to the top. A clear day and the views were incredible. We walked around the top. Only wish we had brought hiking boots on our trip as we would have hiked part way down. Go early, less people.

Punctual and functional like most things Swiss. Groups of 3 gondolas that rotate around every 15 minutes or so, takes about 20 minutes to the top.

Niederhorn is one of the there-must-hike-when-in-Thun mountains (together with Stockhorn and Niesen). It gives you a beautiful panorama view of Thunersee, Bernese Alps and Justistal. The hike is a bit long and quite steep but worth the effort. It is also possible to hike it...More

Dear Siufat, we visited Niederhorn in May 2017, there was no snow at all. Either you have to change the dates or go to some other place like Jungfrau (very expensive, too long to reach and in my opinion highly over-rated... More
