best season

Hiking from the Niesen into the Diemtigtal, you have a magnificent view of Lake Thun and the Simmen and Diemtigtal valleys.

The 3.5 km long route up Niesen Kulm is divided into two sections. The 26-minute ride with the two funiculars up "the swiss pyramid" provides an impressive panorama of Lake Thun and the Kander valley. Once you reach the top station, a wonderful panoramic view of the neighbouring valleys and the peaks of the Bernese Oberland awaits you. The signposted mountain trail to the neighbouring Diemtigtal leads over alpine meadows, through forests and stone fields to the village of Oey.
