Excursion to Niesen – the Swiss Pyramid included
Are there pyramids in Switzerland? Well, at least natural ones. This one, the Niesen, can be “climbed” by a funicular, actually the longest of its kind in the world. Next to the tracks, the longest stairs (for maintenance and evacuation only) is the scene of a yearly run up the 11,674 steps! From the summit, an overwhelming panorama of the Bernese Alps and the lakes is the reward of the visit.
It is time to say goodbye. You take your train back to the Swiss airport or Swiss border.
Alternatively, another tour can be added or you may want to stay a few extra days somewhere else in Switzerland. Just let us know so we can assist in getting you there.
