above the lake
May 2020
located down to the lake when arriving by train, it still lays on a little hill above the shore of the lake with its restaurants and leisure areas. there is a restaurant in the castle, and there are some good panorama views on the lake and the surrounding mountains. a pleasant place to spend some time.

I am taking our out of town visitors here all the time. Great garden and park area, lovely view of the lake and an interesting castle to visit, rain or shine, cold or warm period of the year.

A fine and well preserved castle with a good museum.
Oct 2019
This castle is not the biggest in Europe. But inside there is a good museum to cover the history around that area with many exhibits that include furniture with hundreds of years. It is worthwhile to spend a few hours for those interested in the life in castle and the associated history.

Nice small castle on Lake Thun in Spiez
Sep 2019
A smaller castle in town Spiez on Lake Thun. Quiet place. Surrounding is very nice and pieceful. I came to the castle by train from Thun and there is also a boat that travels around Lake Thun, so it stops at Spiez station, from where you can go to the castle.

A cute smaller Castle on a land point on the lake. Great views of the mountains and lake from the property. A small church is also on the property. Pay to park but not far to walk. Worth the visit.

A magnificent place with superb land escape. The way up from Spiez see is easy and the view from the garden of the castle is fantastic to see lake Thun and Spiez town.

Fun and varied castle experience
Sep 2019 • Couples
This is a small but fun castle. We arrived by boat. It is a 5-10min walk uphill to the castle entrance. You get a discount with the interlaken guest card.
There are some traditional displays about local history and the castle on the first couple of floors.
There is a virtual reality activity which allows you to "tour" the castle and grounds.
Then you can climb the tower. Apart from the amazing 360° views, there are lots of fun activities in the tower: dressing up, writing with quill and ink, trying on chain mail and armour, and practising jousting on a wooden horse!
There is a small cafe by the entrance (but we had ice cream at the cafe by the boat landing stage). There is also a church in the castle grounds which is very pretty.
Well worth a visit.

Interesting castle. Great views of lake
Sep 2019 • Couples
We visited Spiez on a mildly damp day. Entrance was reasonable, about 8 SF with our visitor card. It’s beautifully maintained and interactive in places. The views of the lake from the tower are lovely.

Worth a visit

Hidden gem

This is one of those places which the guidebooks probably don't mention much, but we were staying in the hotel over the road, so a visit was obvious. Really pleased that we did, as the castle and associated church are full of interest. Hadn't realised that it was possible to go up the tower - great views over the lake.
