Excursion tips from the boat crew
Discover great excursion destinations on lakes Thun and Brienz with our crew
Skipper Peter recommends a visit to Hünegg Castle at Hilterfingen:
“The castle’s furnishings have remained unchanged since 1900, giving you the impression that the owner might return at any minute. The castle park and its venerable trees are also impressive.” He regularly recommends the beautiful shoreline path from Faulensee to Spiez to his passengers. The captain also enjoys the morning cruises on board his boat. “You can’t put a price on the great atmosphere on the lake in the mornings.”
Noëlle, boat hand and long-time cook on Lake Brienz, waxes lyrical:“My favourite route is the cruise from Iseltwald to Giessbach. The lake glows in a special shade of turquoise there. Of the three walking trails that run from Iseltwald to Giessbach, I like the lowest shoreline trail the most, as it provides the most impressive views of the rugged surrounding mountains. My favourite place? My boat.”
