Excursions into the mountains

in the Lake Thun region.

Would you like to explore the surrounding Bernese Alpine region during your stay at the Deltapark Vitalresort? Gwatt is the ideal starting point. Choose from the nearby Niesen, Stockhorn, or Jungfraujoch mountain regions - and perhaps had a hike and experience the Bernese Alps up close.

The Stockhorn is the highest peak in the Stockhorn range - with its striking rocky outcrop at the entrance to the Bernese Oberland visible from far and wide. Standing at the top of the rock face and looking towards Thun, the Aare valley, Bern and even as far as the Jura is an incredible experience. The Stockhorn is ideal for half-or full-day excursions all year round. The adventure world offers guests of all ages an opportunity to leave everyday life behind - providing time and space to experience, relax, and enjoy!


Visit an imposing pyramid in Switzerland? The perfect shape of this mountain has inspired artists such as Ferdinand Hodler (1909), Paul Klee (1915) and Cuno Amiet (1926) for centuries. After a spectacular ride on the funicular railroad - alongside the longest staircase in the world - marvel at the view from 2,362 meters offering a fantastic 360° panorama of the Bernese Alps, Lakes Thun and Brienz, the Bernese Plateau, and the Jura mountain range along the French border. Treat yourself to culinary delights in the Berghaus Niesen Kulm - on the top of Switzerland's pyramid.
