“A historic castle with endless views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

If you're in Thun, there's no reason not to explore this 12th Century castle. It's in pretty good shape and if you make it up all the way to the top, you're rewarded with views worthwhile of many photos.

There are also artifacts on display, so beyond the architectural beauty, you can enjoy seeing and reading about some historic relics.

“A Castle as in a Fairytale”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Thun castle looks as in a fairytale. Inside you can visit a museum of medeavel wapons. A while ago the castel was used as a jail.

“Nice castle, nice views!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

The castle is very nice, with several rooms to visit, and some exibits on them.
It's a shame that there are just a few english explanations.

“Awesome looking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

We hiked the stairs to the castle and it was quite awesome. Work was being done, scaffolding, which sort of took away from pictures.

“One of many lovey castles around Thun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

Earlier this month, my family visited Lake Thun and many of the surrounding attractions. This castle anchors the town visually and is just as impressive on the exterior as it is inside. Like most of the best parts of Switzerland, the more effort you invest, the better the experience. The nearby caves, awe inspiring mountain setting, and crystal clear lake can be overwhelming.

If this castle is too busy for your taste, the nearby castles in Spiez and Wimmis are equally worthwhile. Schloss Spiez is great for little boys interested in how life was during medieval times. The self guided tour, simple gift shop, multiple food and drink venues, and the entire setting perched at the edge of the lake are incredible. (Trip Advisor needs to make adding locations and destinations easier.). The ferry boat terminal is within walking distance.
