The “Niesen Village” playground

Mt. Niesen – an appealing destination for a family outing.

In Niesendörfli (the “Niesen Village”), a quaint play area made of wood, the little ones can play and frolic to their hearts’ content while the adults enjoy the stunning views over the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The Niesen Village also features prominently in the Mt. Niesen children’s stories, about the tame fox and the magical millstone.
