With its busy old town, overlooked by the imposing castle, Thun is rightly known as the gateway to the Bernese Oberland.
The River Aare meanders through the delightful old town and the castle towers high above the historic buildings. Meanwhile, the famous 4,000- metre-high peaks draw your gaze into the distance and the lake is always within reach. In Thun – the Alpine city with a distinctive flair – there’s always something going on. You can explore the city in a variety of ways.
