The Berneuse (or la Berneuse) is a mountain of the western Bernese Alps, above Leysin in the canton of Vaud. It lies on the range east of the Rhone valley, culminating at the Tour d'Aï.

Its summit (2,045 m) is a popular destination, hosting the Kuklos, a revolving restaurant[3] accessible by cable cabin from town. On a clear day, Lake Geneva is visible from this summit.
