Perfect spot for viewing the town of Oberhofen, Thunersee, and of course the castle. The pier/restaurant has really nice outdoor seating for a sunny day (not much interior room so may not be a great spot on rainy days). The drink menu, both alcoholic and...More

A chilled place to have a drink, snack and watch the sun go down over the lake. Pier 17 is right next to the beautiful castle. The staff were so friendly and fun, and we spent both our evenings in Oberhofen here sitting in the...More

We loved this relaxed place and visited two evenings in a row to have a drink and watch the sunset. It has amazing views of the castle and the whole length of the lake, but best of all are the wonderful, friendly people who work...More

This little secret is located in the boat pier of idylic little village Oberhofen. Pier 17 stands for handpicked drinks and little bites and simply the most stunning sun sets at the lake of Thun.

Very interesting place to watch the lake. Nice food. Busy at times, locals meet there for coffee etc. A stop for the lake steamers.

This is a very casual setting. You order at the counter and they deliver the food to you. We enjoyed the pizza. We were here in June so it was hot. They could have used more shade.

As we got off the ferry at the Oberhofen am Thunersee stop, we were hungry for lunch. I'm typically skeptical of places in prime locations. They often cut corners on the quality of their product and live off location. We did not find that to...More

PIER17 – EIN ORT DES WANDELS Das PIER17 an der BLS Schiffländte Oberhofen ist ein Restaurant, direkt am schönen Thunersee. Wo früher Ausflügler ihr Billet kauften und auf ihr Schiff warteten, kann heute in nostalgischem Ambiente fein, gesund und mit einem guten Gefühl gegessen und getrunken werden. Es hat sich viel verändert und auch wieder nicht – noch heute werfen die Matrosen im Sommer fast stündlich ihre Leinen und die Kursschiffe stoppen vor dem PIER17. Das ist eine willkommene Unterhaltung für unsere Gäste, bevor sie wieder das beeindruckende Bergpanorama, das Essen und den See geniessen. Wir gehen einen Schritt weiter und stellen die Nachhaltigkeit noch mehr ins Zentrum. Dazu haben wir mit sechs kreativen Menschen einen der schönsten ‚Sundowner-Plätze’ am Thunersee kraftvoll aufgemischt. Zusammen sind wir die Visionäre und unser erstes Projekt: das PIER17. Auch diese Saison haben wir wieder ein neues Angebot im ‚Shop & more’ für Sie zusammengestellt.
