Niesen – the mountain for hikers and athletes

The Niesen (2362 m metres above sea level) is one of the most famous peaks in the Bernese Oberland – not least due to its pyramid shape and its wonderful location high above Lake Thun.

It is also popular for hiking and sport. Once a year, the Niesen Stairway Run takes place on the longest stairs in the world. During the season, various hiking paths and running routes lead to the Niesen.

Travel in comfort by train to Mülenen. From there, it is just 200 m on foot to the valley station of the Niesenbahn. Then you can either travel on the historic cable car up to the middle station or to the summit or start your hike directly from there.


Benefit from the following advantage if you purchase the outward and return journey by public transport at the same time:

  • 10% reduction on the mountain and valley trip from Mülenen to Niesen Kulm
