The Niesen is known as the Swiss Pyramid. It is a smaller berg that offers fantastic views of the Eiger, Monk and Jungfrau. There is a train that goes to the top with a station midway if you decide that the trip would be better as a segment. There is a restaurant at the top to reward yourself with a meal, wine or beer. It is difficult and you should be in good shape before attempting the downhill segment.
