The home of ibexes, marmots and golden eagles
Alpine orienteering, wildlife watching, rapid descents by Trottibike (half bike/half scooter), tobogganing or excellent cuisine: the Niederhorn offers a variety of adventures.
Located at 1,963 m above sea level, the Niederhorn offers spectacular views. At the foot of Beatenberg’s local mountain lies Lake Thun; to the north, views reach as far as the Sigriswil mountain ridge; in the southwest, the Niesen stretches high up in the sky; and in the southeast, the big three mountains of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau amaze visitors with their snow-covered peaks. The Niederhorn, however, has so much more to offer than just panoramic views, it is the perfect place for excursions.
Experience ibexes, chamois and marmots up close
From July to September, hikers can experience very special magic moments on the Niederhorn. Early risers might meet ibexes, chamois, marmots and possibly even the kings of the skies – golden eagles – on their journey. After the five-hour hike, the middle station Vorsass offers refreshments and breathtaking panoramic views of Lake Thun.
