Hint

Intro

The section leads alongside the River Aare to the Weissenau nature reserve on the Thunersee lake. From Neuhaus it continues through woodland, often with clear views of the lake and the Bernese Alps. The Beatushöhlen (caves), former place of pilgrimage of St. Beatus are particularly impressive.

Description

There are a host of natural and cultural attractions on the pilgrim's route alongside Lake Thun. Picturesque churches, vineyards, drystone walls, rocky mountains and waterfalls are only some examples of this varied section of St. James' Way. The walk leads through both inhabited areas and nature reserves. The Beatus Caves, where the cell of Saint Beatus can be viewed, form the highlight of the way.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
