Beatenberg

Located high above Lake Thun, this sun terrace offers a unique panorama of the Bernese Oberland’s Alpine peaks including the famous threesome, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Away from the main tourist streams, the holiday destination in the neighbourhood of Interlaken welcomes nature lovers and families in particular.
The main attraction of Beatenberg is its location. The village is one of the best vantage points set against the Bernese Alps and affords a view of deeply blue Lake Thun. Just about 10 kilometres by road away from Interlaken, Beatenberg is furthermore a perfect starting point for excursions to the Lake Thun and Jungfrau region.

Summer

In summer the mountain countryside is perfect for walking. High moors and karst fields of national importance are a treat for nature lovers. For relaxed walks there is the Beatusweg from the Waldegg district to the village centre. The 4-kilometre-long play and adventure trail relates the legend of Holy Beatus, patron saint of Beatenberg. The wooden castle which is safe to walk on, the ship and the big dragon are simply waiting for children to play on them. A biographical theme trail is dedicated to the bestselling author Erich von Däniken.

The Niederhorn (1950 metres above sea level), Beatenberg’s "house mountain" is accessible by aerial cableway from the village as well as from the nearby lakeside. From the Niederhorn several routes head in the direction of the village or over the Gemmenalphorn to the neighbouring village of Habkern. It’s not unusual to spot the odd ibex or marmot along the way. Two scooter-bike routes provide the perfect opportunity for a fast ride. The Niederhorn is particularly popular with paragliders. The colourful spectacle of paragliders set against the steel blue sky is a delight for spectators as well.

Winter

The Beatenberg family ski region of Niederhorn and Hohwald, a toboggan run, cross-country skiing tracks, an extensive winter walking trail network, a natural ice rink and the ever fascinating view of the snow-covered peaks make the Bernese Oberland holiday resort an attractive destination for exciting while relaxing winter holidays.

Highlights

  • Niederhorn – vantage point above Beatenberg, starting point for short and long walks and family-friendly ski region.
  • Beatus Caves – one of the biggest limestone cave systems with stalagnites and stalactites in Switzerland, a lit section of it is open to visitors.
  • Lake Thun – from the Beatenberg sun terrace easily accessible by funicular.
