Only a short journey by bike, coach or train from Kandersteg, Niesen is a beautiful mountain which offers amazing panoramic views of the Alps and the lakes Thun and Brienz. A funicular train takes you steeply up to the summit at 2'362m; once at the top, you will find a large paranomic viewing platform and large restaurant. You can combine the journey with a visit to Thun. The Niesen Funicular departs from Mülenen, which is only 20 minutes from Kandersteg by train or car.
This activity does not include transport from Kandersteg to Mülenen, you can purchase tickets for this part of the journey at the train station. For groups of 10 or more we advise that you make a reservation for your journey. Niessen makes a great combination with a trip to Thun.
One of the main themes of our Programme the environment is important to all Scouts. We have Guided and Self-Guided Programme as well as the Eco Adventure Room and environmental information around the Centre and Campsite.
