Starlit sledging - new year

Celebrate new year with us. Join us for starlit sledging and fondue.

Celebrate new year`s evening together with friends on the Niederhorn and take the last cable car back to Beatenberg at 1.00 O`clock.

After nightfall the mountain railways will transport you from Beatenbucht or Beatenberg to the Niederhorn. You can sled from Niederhorn down to Vorsass as many times as you please. After 6.35 pm the cable car from Vorsass to Niederhorn operates every 15 minutes.

If you book the «new year - starlit sledging PLUS», you start your evening with a fondue in the Berghaus, in the cosy dining room, decorated with sheepskins, above the lights of the Bernese Oberland. Afterwards you sled for about 30 minutes down to Vorsass. To finish off an eventful evening we will serve you a mulled wine or glogg at the restaurant Vorsass.
