Perfect postcard views from the boat – and a stop-off on the Beatenberg sun terrace above Lake Thun. The Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau also present themselves on the way to the Gemmenalphorn, and you catch a glimpse of ibex as well.

Truly no end of views – and on a clear day panoramic views extend from the Justistal valley to Jura, over the Aare valley as far as the Blüemlisalp and snow-capped giants in the Benese Oberland.

Lengthy ridge hikes, observing game in natural surroundiings, herbs and cave excursions, tasty mountain restaurant lunches and downhill scooter rides all add to possible adventure on the Niederhorn – not forgetting the scenic trip in the panoramic glass funicular from Beatenbucht, and modern group orbit rail from Beatenberg.
