Trotti Hike is a must-try. You have to get off in the mid way, not to the peak. And pls choose “rocky run” route. For “happy trail”, it is not that happy actually as some of the rouge is flat or uphill and you have to push the bike…i guess that is why it takes longer time

Fantastic experience, we expected just a fenicular railway but after a little while, we came to a station where we got off and then had to go on a cable car all the way to the top of the Niederhorn, unfortunately there was a lot of cloud so you couldn’t see the brilliant views but a lovely visit none the less.

Enjoy the mountain, lake and sun while having a locally brewed beer.

The playground at the top of the mountain would keep the little ones busy and allow parents to enjoy their moments.

PROS
• Such tremendous fun!!
• So smooth and quiet and effortless
• Beautiful trip of three linked cable cars
• New shiny equipment
• Not crowded; frequent service

CONS
I always hope to be alone in the cable car- that didn’t happen

“I VISITED THIS PLACE “…
… on the way to hiking to the top of Niederhorn. It was fun and effortless.

I took candid photos of the people sitting opposite us- I hope that you find them “helpful.”

Full disclosure- the truth is that I didn’t know the difference between Beseech Beatenbuch Station and Beatenberg until I got here- and now, I know that…

The first Is the ground station with links to the boat and the bus.

This one in this review is the middle station for sitting between fun icular and cache car. I saw that automobiles can get here and park; that’s about all I know- yes: of course there were hiking trails from this middle station too.

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.

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.

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!
