“lake cruise on the Thunersee from Interlaken”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

We took the boat cruise on Lake Thun from Interlaken as a break from driving and walking. The embark point is just across from Interlaken's Bahnhof West. There is a parking garage a couple of blocks from the station. We booked passage for a one-way trip to Spiez, about midway to Thun at the opposite end of the lake and took the train back to Interlaken from Spiez (you can buy both tickets on board the boat). The lake is incredibly beautiful with its blue-green water. There are two fare classes - second and first. First class has the upper deck with a restaurant and outdoor seating. Second class has a large open deck and an area for inside seating. The boat makes several stops at towns and villages along the lake until it reaches the town of Spiez, itself a lovely place to visit and about halfway down the lake. From the dock at Speiz, it's a fairly lengthy walk up to the train station. If you are mobility impaired, you may have a problem getting to the station unless you can find a taxi. The cruise was a very pleasant way to spend a few hours.
