'Ufe Niese cho gniesse!'The Niesen (2,362 m a. s. l.) ) is one of the most famous peaks in the Bernese Oberland - not least because of its iconic pyramid shape and wonderful location high above Lake Thun, as well as the longest staircase in the world (11,674 steps!). The nostalgic funicular from 1910 takes you in two sections to the top of the Niesen, and you can reach the viewing platform in just a few steps along the easily accessible path. At the Berghaus Niesen Kulm you can indulge in culinary delights, stay overnight or even rent a room for your next seminar or private party. The Niesen offers the perfect setting for you with a unique backdrop.
