The views are amazing, the walking is incredible and the cable car fun (when you're not paying full price) but the restaurant is truly terrible. I've been in Switzerland long enough now not to be shocked by the prices or quality of service but bringing visitors here I was actually embarrassed. The staff were rude. ("you asked for one drink...

Not to say that Austria isn't amazing, because it is, but of course the prices in Switzerland are going to be HIGH. Sure, the gondola is pricey, I think about $40 USD which is equivalent to 40 Swiss Franc, but even Subway Restaurant is overpriced! I paid $17 dollars for ONE sandwich in Interlaken thinking that i would save some... More

Hiked up to the top and went to the restaurant. The staff did not really welcome us and the variety of food was very poor. The food tasted very average, but was really expensive compared with other restaurants in the mountains. The coffee was a Desaster and was not even close to real coffee. The journey back in the cable... More

We traveled through six countries during our 2016 visit to Europe and the Niederhorn is definitely one of my favorite places visited. If you are in the area on a lovely day, you want to make time for this excursion. Highly recommend.

It is beautiful up on the mountain! We loved being so high up that we could see many more snow-capped ridges than it is possible to see from below. The paths are paved up on the Niederhorn -- you can walk a long way -- even all the way back down, if you want. There is a small restaurant at... More

Niederhorn cable car system provides a great adventure for the whole family as the train will climbed the high mountain with spectacular views. Top of the mountain is another experience to see all the nearby lakes, mountains and valleys. The ticket is pricy and the limited food selection on the top.
