The Niederhorn (elevation 1950 metres) is a peak in the Swiss Alps in the Bernese Oberland near Beatenberg. It is the peak farthest west in the G├╝ggis ridge. From its summit you can see Lake Thun and the entire Bernese Alps. An aerial cable car to the summit was completed in 1946 with a restaurant and children's playground at the top. Today the summit can be reached by the Seilbahnen Beatenberg-Niederhorn, a more modern gondola lift that runs from the village of Beatenberg, where it connects with the Thunersee-Beatenberg Bahn, a funicular with connections to the shipping services on Lake Thun.
