Visit Thun in 2024

Thun, often referred to as the gateway to the Bernese Oberland, is a picturesque town that epitomizes Swiss charm. The lakefront, with its crystalline waters, is a popular spot for boating, swimming, and other water activities. In contrast, the town's interior is characterized by cobblestone streets, well-preserved medieval architecture, and inviting squares that beckon for exploration.
At the heart of the town stands Thun Castle, an imposing medieval structure that now houses the Thun Castle Museum. It offers panoramic views of the town and the surrounding natural beauty. In the main square, you'll find a vibrant market selling local produce, crafts, and souvenirs—a true spectacle of local life.
The town is also a hub for outdoor activities, especially in the surrounding mountains where hiking, mountain biking, and winter sports are popular. The Niederhorn and the Stockhorn peaks provide excellent opportunities for such activities, complete with breathtaking views.
Thun is easily accessible by train and boat, making it a perfect day trip from larger cities like Bern and Zurich. Whether you're interested in outdoor adventures, want to soak up some culture, or simply relax by the lake, Thun has something for everyone.
