Simply beautiful bridge with White water flowing underneath. Enjoy walks over the bridge for a nice view towards the main lake and crossing from one end of the city to the next. Take some great photo’s in front of the beautiful bridge too.

These covered bridges are incredible and this one particularly as you can see the mechanism for regulating the water flow. The water in Thun flows really strongly and in the time we have been here we have noticed that at different times different gates are...More

A nice bridge to get on to see how it works. A good shelter away from the strong chilling winter winds as well.
