Sledging by starlight on the Niederhorn

  • Beatenberg

Experience the fun of sledging by moonlight and enjoy the nocturnal panorama

Enjoy sledging by starlight on the Niederhorn every Friday and Saturday evening. After a fondue in the Berghaus Niederhorn, the light of the moon and the twinkling stars will show you the way to Vorsass on the romantic sledging run, where you can warm up with a delicious glass of mulled wine.

During the winter season, sledging by starlight on the Niederhorn takes place every Friday and Saturday evening. Savour the magical evening atmosphere as the Niederhornbahn takes you from Beatenbucht or Beatenberg station to Niederhorn. The cable car runs every 15 minutes from 17.55h onwards from the middle station in Vorsass to the Niederhorn. The last ascent departs at 21.35h You can enjoy as many sledge trips as you like between those times. Sledging by starlight is a must for sledging fans and night owls. You will be struck by how silent the snow-covered landscape is. Admire the nocturnal panorama, illuminated by the light reflecting from the white mountain peaks and the sparkling sea of lights in the valley emanating from the houses lining the shores of Lake Thun. Sledge in the bright moonlight under the sparkling star-lit sky on the well-groomed sledging run to Vorsass. Several lanterns also mark the way. The descent takes around 30 minutes.
