Yesterday we went back to Lake Thun, but unlike last week we went on its other side, to the top of Niederhorn (1 950m.n.m.).
At the beginning a good tip for travelers: in Switzerland if you decide to take a trip on the cable car, find out in advance if there are any discounted fares. I do not mean half fare for children aged 6-16 or for adults who own Halbtax Abo. Some companies offer reduced prices if you arrive before or after a certain hour. And at some sites can someone who has a birthday on that day travel completely for free.
Unfortunately, we missed this opportunity a few days, but we found that if you come to the funicular train station in Beatenbucht before 8:44, you can save 42% on a return ticket for an adult. And that’s quite significant savings if you consider local prices!

There was only this one picnic area along the trail, but fortunately had three fire pits, so every hungry tourist could find his place here (in this post you can find 12 essentials to take with you for a picnic in Switzerland).
