    The 2,362 meter high Niesen is the local mountain of Thun, at least from the point of view of the inhabitants of Thun. The citizens of Spiez, however, declare the mountain as their own local mountain. However, in any case, the striking conical mountain offers breathtaking views of Lake Thun and the Bernese Oberland. You can reach the mountain on various hiking trails. Alternatively, you take the funicular to the summit and descend from here down into the valley.

    Wonderful vantage point, which can be reached by train or on foot.
