Discover the many leisure options on the Wiriehorn

Take the chairlift to the summit and enjoy. The Wiriehornbahnen offers an extensive range of leisure activities. Whether it’s mountain biking or scooter riding in summer or skiing, snowboarding or sledging in winter, the Wiriehorn offers rapid descents of all kinds.

Would you like to enjoy a leisurely ride to the top in the six-seater chairlift followed by a fast-paced descent down to the valley on a mountain bike or scooter? The Wiriehornbahnen offer you unique biking opportunities. In addition to these options, in summer you can take the train to the Wiriehorn Geological Trail, which starts at the summit station in Nüegg. In winter, the Wiriehorn is the largest ski area in the Diemtigtal Nature Park, with a chair lift, four t-bar lifts and a children’s lift. How about a fast-paced sledge ride? The 5 km sledging run will inspire you.
