Lake Thun is an Alpine lake in Switzerland’s Bernese Oberland region. Its shore is dotted with towns, including Thun, and Romanesque churches. In Thun’s old town, 12th-century Thun Castle houses a museum exhibiting prehistoric and medieval artifacts. To the south, Schadau Park has the Thun Panorama, a 19th-century 360-degree painting of the town. Farther south is Spiez Castle, with furnished 15th-century You can swim anywhere in the lake of Thun. It is free of charge. The main one is from Interlaken to Thun and takes about 2 hours. Whatever you choose, a boat trip is a great way to enjoy the beautiful region at a slow pace. The boats have 1st and second class sections. 2nd class is usually at the upper deck.
A cruise on Lake Thun is an experience that also relaxes: whilst enjoying a fine meal, a glass of wine or simply the glorious sunshine on deck, your gaze will travel pass along the attractive shore with its romantic villages, majestic historic castles… right up to the peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.
Comfortable saloon motor vessels and, as the crowning glory, the magnificently restored “Blümlisalp” paddlewheel steamship ferry passengers from Thun to Interlaken the whole year round. In addition to mouth-watering onboard menus and various special gourmet cruises, the larger vessels also offer attractions for children, be it a play cabin or a games corner with toys and crayons.
A lake cruise is the perfect way of discovering the scenic diversity of the region around Lake Thun. A lovely trail leads up from the Beatushöhlen-Sundlauenen boat landing stage to the impressive karst caves with their mighty stalactites, stalagmites and waterfalls.
The picturesque small town of Spiez, with its castle and Romanesque church, lies on the opposing side of the lake. Further castles together with their excellent museums can be found in Thun and its stretch of shoreline, which is also termed the “Riviera of the Bernese Oberland” on account of its mild climate: Hünegg castle, in Oberhofen and by Hilterfingen. Other highlights along the lakeshore include the musical performances in summer of the ‘Thuner Seespiele’ (Lake Thun Festival).
Favourite excursion peaks around the lake are the pyramidal Niesen, the Stockhorn and the Niederhorn. These afford visitors with compelling views across the lake and the Alps. The town of Interlaken, the starting point for many excursions into the Jungfrau region and the eastern Bernese Oberland, lies at the eastern end of the lake.
Brienz Lake free with Swiss pass
Brienz is a village on the northeast shore of Lake Brienz, in Switzerland’s Bernese Oberland region. The village's 18th-century wooden chalets and the sculptures dotted throughout the village are testimonials to a woodcarving tradition. North, a steam train runs up Brienzer Rothorn Mountain, with views of the lake and surrounding Alps. East of Brienz, the Ballenberg Open Air Museum offers glimpses of rural life.
The probably most romantic part of Brienz is the Brunngasse which, having once been awarded the title «most beautiful street in Europe», is well-known abroad. Most of the houses in the street date from the 18th century and are decorated with wood carvings. Brienz, which is well-known as the "village of carving" has a long tradition in wood processing and to this day has a school for carving and violin-making. WinterThose in search of winter sports pleasures will strike lucky in nearby Axalp, where there is a small, family-friendly winter sports area – complete with the «Axiland!» learning and experience slopes for children - away from the hustle and bustle. For more experience snow sports enthusiasts there is the Meiringen-Hasliberg ski region which is also easily and quickly accessible.SummerA walk along the traffic-free lake promenade, past small boat ports and playgrounds, is a refreshing experience. In summer locals and visitors come to enjoy a swim. The view of the lake with ever-changing moods is a unique experience. And for an even more intense lake experience, we recommend a cruise, for example on board the historic salon paddle steamer «Lötschberg».
The two railway stations are just a short distance away from the ship embarkation point: Brienz is located on the narrow-gauge railway line which links the famous holiday destinations of Interlaken, Meiringen-Hasliberg, Brünig, Lucerne and Engelberg. The other station is the small base station of the steam rack-railway up the Brienzer Rothorn panorama and hiking peak.
At the Ballenberg Open-air Museum a look into the kitchens, chambers, living rooms and workshops of the authentically reconstructed houses and farms of agricultural Switzerland dating from the 16th to the 19th century prove that this museum is not about showing off a collection of dusty rareties but instead is dedicated to treating visitors to a real experience.
