Located high above Lake Thun, this sun terrace offers a unique panorama of the Alpine peaks of the Bernese Oberland including the famous threesome, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Away from the main tourist streams, the village is particularly popular with nature-lovers and families.
The main attraction of Beatenberg is its location. The village is one of the best vantage points set against the Bernese Alps and affords a view of deeply blue Lake Thun. Just about 10 kilometres by road away from Interlaken, Beatenberg is furthermore a perfect starting point for excursions to the Lake Thun and Jungfrau region.
The Niederhorn (1950 metres above sea level), Beatenberg’s "house mountain" is accessible by aerial cableway from the village as well as from the nearby lakeside. From the Niederhorn several routes head in the direction of the village or over the Gemmenalphorn to the neighbouring village of Habkern. It’s not unusual to spot the odd ibex or marmot along the way. Two scooter-bike routes provide the perfect opportunity for a fast ride. The Niederhorn is particularly popular with paragliders. The colourful spectacle of paragliders set against the steel blue sky is a delight for spectators as well.
