Trotti-Biken am Niederhorn mit Aussicht auf den Thunersee

The thrill downhill into the valley

For children, it is the big finale, for adults perhaps something different, to ride down the mountain on a dirt scooter! You choose the tempo yourself, and there are two routes. From Vorsass Mid-Station, you can ride on the dirt scooter to Beatenberg Station. On the direct descent, you travel fast, straight to your destination. Anyone who would like to take it easy, while still wishing to try out a dirt scooter for the full experience, goes for the Dirt Scooter Promenade. There is fun to be had and action for all on both routes! Thanks to special children’s scooter bikes, riding a scooter bike on the Niederhorn is suitable for children as from school age.

A “Direttissima” Scooter Bike Route

B “Flanierama” Scooter Bike Route

“Direttissima” Scooter Bike Route 20-30minutes

The 6 km route from Vorsass straight to the Beatenberg Station leads over paved forest roads. We recommend this route especially for families and schools. Time required: 20-30 minutes

“Flanierama” Scooter Bike Route 60-90minutes

This route is more comfortable, however more demanding. It is rather flat, and leads over paved forestry roads and unsurfaced roads. The route initially takes you to the Bodenalp, then through the woods into the Rischerental Valley. On the third and last stretch, you ride along the main road through Beatenberg – the longest village in Europe – to Beatenberg Bahnstation, steep grade ascent station. Children need breaks on this route, as there are various little gradients to overcome. There are numerous barbecue and picnic areas along the way. This route is suitable for company excursions or school classes with older students (Upper School). Time required: 60-90 minutes

The scooter bikes can be rented at the Vorsass Mid-Station.
