The "Heimat und Rebbau Museum" on rural living and wine-growing is located in a wonderful, typical rural chalet of the Simmental, built in 1728.
The Niesen (2'362 m a.s.l.) raises like a pyramide above Spiez. Locals predict the weather for the day depending on how the clouds drape around its peak. The Niesen can be easily reached by funicular, leaving at Mülenen. The stairway along the railway tracks is sited as the world's longest in the Guiness Book of Records. 11'674 steps lead to the mountain top. The Niesen offers a wonderful view of the Bernese Alps, the Simmen and Frutig valleys as well as Lake Thun.
Falling rocks created the mysterious and unreal setting of the Blausee Natural Park about 15'000 years ago. Lake Blausee is famous for its crystal clear mountain water, its trout farm and its children playground which even astonishes grown-ups. Several walking trails lead along the lake, through the woods and a ravine.
