The 19th Niesen-Stairway-Run on June 12th / 13th, 2020 is cancelled.


Corona-Update: 20.04.2020

On April 16, the Federal Council of Switzerland informed about the gradual easing in Switzerland from April 27.

Unfortunately, it is still unclear at what time sports events can taking place again. It is also not clear at what time and under what conditions the Niesen-Funicular may start operating.

For these reasons, we have decided to cancel the Niesen-Stairwayrun from June 12/13, 2020 and to postpone it to 2021.

The next Niesen-Stairwayrun will take place on June 11/12, 2021.

All registrations will be carried over to next year. If you don't want to or can't participate next year, please send us an email by April 30, 2020 to In this case we will refund the entry fee.

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you all healthy next year at the start of the run.



Important instructions

For safety reasons, walking on the Niesen-Stairway is generally not allowed (except, at the Stairway-Run). Since at any time a ride on the Niesenbahn (extra trips) is possible, staying on the stairs is very dangerous.
