Since 2010 the Niesen is for disabled people and wheelchair users possible to reach. With ramps it is possible to get on and off the funicular in the valley- and middlestation. In each funicular we have one compartment for at least one wheelchair. In the mountainstation Niesen Kulm two lifts will bring disabled people to the asphalted path to the mountain lodge. so it's possible for them to enjoy the ride, the restaurant and the fantastic views.
