starlit sledging

Every Friday and Saturday evening during the winter season

Come sledging high above the Lake Thun where the starry sky and the lights of the city compete. On Friday and Saturday nights from 6.35 p.m. the cable car runs every 15 minutes from Vorsass to the Niederhorn. The sled run is marked with laterns all the way to Vorsass. Have a sociable evening with «starlit sledging PLUS»: a fondue in the Berghaus Niederhorn and a mulled wine or glogg in the restaurant Vorsass.


Starlit sledging on the Niederhorn

With fondue and mulled wine or just sledging

After dark the Niederhorn-railway will bring you comfortably from Beatenbucht or Beatenberg station to the Niederhorn. The cable car runs from 6.35 pm every 15 minutes from middle station Vorsass to the Niederhorn and the last run is at 9.45 pm. In the meantime you can use the lifts as many times as you want.

Starlit sledging PLUS
Start the evening with a delicious fondue at the Berghaus Niederhorn by booking «starlit sledging PLUS». The modern restaurant is very cosy with its sheep skin blankets and the view onto the lights of the Bernese Oberland will amaze you throughout dinner. After dinner you sled for 30 minutes along the latern lit way to middle station Vorsass, where you receive a warming mulled wine or glogg in the restaurant Vorsass.
