Young and old alike have enjoyed the thrilling sledging runs for generations! Especially when the impressive panorama is added and the slope also invites you to take a short break on a short hiking path or to perhaps even enjoy a quick snowball fight.
In addition to the sledging runs, there are also small slopes to go sledging at the ski lifts Boden and Hohwald. Sledges can be rented on the Niederhorn and in the sports shop.
Night-time sledging: every Friday- and Saturday-evening from 23 December 2016 until 11 March 2017. When it is dark out, the funiculars will conveniently take you up to the Niederhorn either from the Beatenbucht or from Beatenberg. After 6:15 PM, you can sledge from the Niederhorn down to the Vorsass as often as you like. After 7:00 PM, the cable car travels from the Vorsass to the Niederhorn every 15 minutes.
Those that prefer to start a bit more leisurely can simply book the offer "Sternenschlitteln PLUS" (night sledging PLUS) with a great fondue in the Berghaus Niederhorn. The modern dining room is decorated with sheepskins and a great view of the Berner Oberland landscape and invites you to linger. Afterwards, you can sledge towards the lights of the middle station Vorsass for 30 minutes. To round off this multifaceted evening, mulled wine or punch are served to you in the Bärgrestaurant Vorsass.
The woods in and surrounding Beatenberg fulfil various protective functions. Unfortunately, they are damaged in part. Numerous wild species face a tough struggle for survival in the rough mountain winter. Skiing in the woods adds additional stress and is therefore not permitted. We ask our guests to follow the markings and to refrain from skiing, sledging and hiking in the woods.
