Lake Thun & Brienz Cruise

Dear Forum Members

Can someone please advise I have to choose between these cruises because of shortage of time, which one is preferable either because of the scenery surrounding the lake or because of activities in Brienz or Thun

Hi Malik

I would recommend to take the Lake Thun Cruise directly to Interlaken. From there you can directly start a Brienz Lake tour if you have enough time.

Or you can go back again by Boat to Thun. If you have definitly no time, you can take the cruise ship from Thun to Interlaken and then with the Train back from Interlaken to Thun.

I'd do a Lake Thun cruise, Brienz with the Ballenberg open air museum near by and the train up the Rothorn is also nice, but I find the cruise on Lake Thun a lot more picturesque (alone the blue of the water is for me breathtaking every time am there), I would just do it one way, that is totally sufficient, maybe get off in Spiez, visit the Beatus caves, or go up to Beatenberg and the Niederhorn and Thun is wonderful.

Personally I like Lake Brienz. The villages along the shore are much more quaint and the water of the lake is a brilliant blue.
