Dusk at Lake Thun

The lake of Thun is over 200m deep. The light effects on the water are often mesmerising. The mountain towering above the lake is called Niesen. On top is a restaurant that serves great breakfasts. A cable car takes folks to the peak which is at 2362m above sea level or 1800m above the lake.

From the middle station a hike up to the very top is a little sporty but not dangerous at all. It’s quite an unforgettable memory. The weather up there sometimes changes very quickly from broad sun light to clouds and fog.

On a clear day the view on top of the Niesen is breathtaking across to the famous Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau (all reaching an altitude of around 4000m).
