Top travel tips

1. The dreamlike beautiful castle at the lake

Visit Oberhofen Castle, which is located in the community of the same name. The keep was built in the 12th century with a little tower, a late medieval palace and an access bridge. The residential wing dates from the 18th century. Worth seeing are also the stair tower, the chapel and the clock tower.

2. Admire stalactite caves from the inside

Let yourself be led up to one kilometre deep into the St. Beatus Caves and observe the unique formations of the stalactite caves in the Niederhorn massif. The holy Beatus is said to have died here, which is why the caves bear his name. There is also a legend of a fire-breathing dragon that once lived here. Below the caves you will find a part of the Jakobsweg.

3. Wonderful old town at the lake

A city stroll through Thun provides for varied hours. It is the third largest city in Bern and has a charming old town with many old buildings. Visit also the castle hill with Donjon from 1190.
