Intro

Embedded within an imposing backdrop of mountains, the deeply-blue Lake Thun lies on the northern periphery of the Alps, between the Bernese Oberland towns of Thun and Interlaken. Lake Thun is especially popular amongst sailors and windsurfers who appreciate the prevailing light breeze. Numerous swimming and shore areas invite visitors to cool off.

A cruise on Lake Thun is an experience that also relaxes: whilst enjoying a fine meal, a glass of wine or simply the glorious sunshine on deck, your gaze will travel pass along the attractive shore with its romantic villages, majestic historic castles… right up to the peaks of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

Comfortable saloon motor vessels and, as the crowning glory, the magnificently restored “Blümlisalp” paddlewheel steamship ferry passengers from Thun to Interlaken the whole year round. In addition to mouth-watering onboard menus and various special gourmet cruises, the larger vessels also offer attractions for children, be it a play cabin or a games corner with toys and crayons.

A lake cruise is the perfect way of discovering the scenic diversity of the region around Lake Thun. A lovely trail leads up from the Beatushöhlen-Sundlauenen boat landing stage to the impressive karst caves with their mighty stalactites, stalagmites and waterfalls.

The picturesque small town of Spiez, with its castle and Romanesque church, lies on the opposing side of the lake. Further castles together with their excellent museums can be found in Thun and its stretch of shoreline, which is also termed the “Riviera of the Bernese Oberland” on account of its mild climate: Hünegg castle, in Oberhofen and by Hilterfingen. Other highlights along the lakeshore include the musical performances in summer of the ‘Thuner Seespiele’ (Lake Thun Festival).

Favourite excursion peaks around the lake are the pyramidal Niesen, the Stockhorn and the Niederhorn. These afford visitors with compelling views across the lake and the Alps. The town of Interlaken, the starting point for many excursions into the Jungfrau region and the eastern Bernese Oberland, lies at the eastern end of the lake.
