“Often overlooked town with a beautiful caslte”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

It is a good idea to take the time to get of the train and go and visit this castle while on the way to Interlaken. It has beautiful views of the lake and surrounding mountains. If you are going to be on or near Lake Thun, ensure that you go and have a look at this castle.

“Wonderful day in Lake Thun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

As it is Spring time and the weather forecast was excellent, I decided to go by train from Lausanne to Spiez to visit its castle. It is wonderful and really worthwhile a visit. If you go to Spiez, do not let to enter in the castle and go up to the top of its tower. There are so many stairs, but do not give up. From the top you will have a beautiful 360 degrees view of the the lake, the village, the mountains and the Romanasque church. After visiting the castle, I went down, had lunch in one of the restaurants, and took the boat to Oberhofen, where there is another castle.The boat ride from Spiez to Oberhofen is very beauutiful, and when arriving it provides good angles for taking photos of the castle. Unfortunately, it was closed and I could not see inside, but I could walk on its park, which is on the backyard of the castle and along the lake. Afterwards I took the boat from Oberhofen to Thun, which has a castle and is very beautifull, as well. (I have not visited it in this time). From Thun I came back to Lausanne by train. It was a wonderful Sunday!

“Has history...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

...it's oldest traces lead back to the 10th century. Surrounded by the lake of thoune and flower gardens it's a great place to visit if you want to avoid crowds.
Also, make some great pictures here to make your friends at home jealous.
There is a museum in which you can get the whole story of this place and the mighty families that owned this castle.
In 2012, the museum opens April 6th.
Entrance is only charged for the museum.
