Such Fun

For us South Africans all the cable car experiences were real fun. They are super clean, efficient, on time, and the view spectacular!

The only way to reach the Niederhorn, other than hiking
Aug. 2019
We were taking a day-trip, driving around the north side of Lake Thun and, of course, going up the Niederhorn was on our list of things to do. We parked at the garage at Beatenbucht Station and took the funicular railway train to Beatenberg, which is probably 1/4th of the way up. From there we switched to the aerial cable car (gondola) for the ride to the summit. The ride takes you to an elevation 6,440 feet, providing a fantastic panoramic view of Lake Thun and the entire Bernese Alps. The ascending trip takes about an hour and the photo ops are endless. At the top, there is a restaurant, a playground for the kids, and numerous hiking trails. It was a beautiful afternoon and we could have hopped on one of the trails for a long scenic hike but instead, we just walked along the ridge on one of the trails for a short distance. We then got a table on the patio of the restaurant, enjoyed the view, and had some coffee and cake. The views of the Alps were spectacular: some of the best that we saw on our vacation. The ride up is a little expensive, but how many times will you get a chance to do this? A "must" place to visit while you are in Switzerland.

Panoramic views surrounded with Alps and glimpses of lake thun from top
Dec. 2019 • Solo
I visited this place during Christmas holidays. It provides panoramic views starting the journey from lake Thun, followed by farnicular tram ride Upto beatenberg and most memorable trip with panoramic cable car till top of Niederhorn. What an excellent place to visit especially on a sunny day! You can not stop yourself by clicking endless photos in your camera from top. You can have several different views from top of it. Must visit place if you have enough time in Switzerland.

Fabulous views, great hiking!
Sep. 2019
This cable-car takes you all the way from the lake to the top of the mountain, with 2 stops along the way if you want to get out to check out Beatenberg village, ride the stand-up bikes down from the mid-point, or take a mid-elevation hike. There are restaurants and restrooms at the top and midpoint, and maps with lots of hiking trails, including meandering along the ridge line (keep your children close-there are very steep drop-offs). This was a perfect day outing for my family, with one member who wanted to relax at the top and enjoy the view, then take the cable-car back down, and others who wanted to hike down. A great day for all, with incredible views in every direction!

stunning views
Sep. 2019
Excellent way to get to the top. We were here only for a few hours in september, unfortunately didn't have much time now. Next time we plan more time in this area, to do some more hiking from the top.

Modern & safe
Sep. 2019 • Couples
Cool & safe funicular that lifts you up to 1950m. There is a restaurant on top and some realxing walks in intact nature. There is no need to bring special mountain gear

Great views
Sep. 2019 • Couples
Beautiful views at the top. Hiked to Gemmenalphorn, a moderate hike. I was staying in Beatenberg and had a guest card discount, which helped with the price. A less crowded place than Interlaken or Grindelwald, but with the same views of the Jungfrau.

Up to the top
Jul. 2019 • Family
Holy smoke we took this cable car which by the way was pretty expensive. Since we had a toddler and a baby with us we had no choice.
I would recommend to walk instead which saves you a lot of money.
Just take the cable car to the middle station and then walk the rest.
Finally on the top you have a fantastic view of the mountains if the sky is clear.

It’s not much to do on the top. There is a restaurant( separat review) and some hiking trails.
It’s worth to make this trip. It’s easy to park your car where you take the cable car. It’s a few minutes walk from the parking area to the cable car.
We had a stroller with to small children and there is no problem to go in and out from the cable car.
If it would be more than 50 Swiss frank/pers to go up to the top. I would come back but for a family excursions with kids in a stroller it’s maybe better to wait. It’s very steep on the top so I wouldn’t recommend letting children run on their own.

Incredible views of the Alps
Jul. 2019 • Family
From Beatenbuch we took the vehicular railway to Beatenberg where we then got the gondola to the top of Niederhorn. The views of the Alps e.g. Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau is spectacular.
There are plenty of walks and a nice cafe/rest.
We walked down to the first gondola stop where some of us took the gondola down whilst the more adventurous hired "trotty" bikes.
Overall it is a good day out but like most of Switzerland needs reasonable weather.
