Enjoy a train journey on the nostalgic Niesenbahn, dating back to 1910, indulge in culinary delights at Berghaus Niesen Kulm, built in 1856, and enjoy either panoramic views or a mystical world of clouds.

The almost perfect pyramid formed by Niesen makes it one of the most striking mountains in the Bernese Oberland. You can reach the summit, some 2,362 metres above sea level, in around 30 minutes by funicular. Depending on the weather, you will be greeted either by a mystical world of clouds or a unique mountain panorama. The funicular railway is just next to Mülenen station (request stop).
