High above Lake Thun lie the limestone caves of St. Beatus: a marvel of nature millions of years old that never ceases to astonish its visitors.
Legend has it that these limestone caves once served as a refuge for St. Beatus, who it is said drove away the dragon who live there in the 6th century. Even today the Caves of St. Beatus still exude a special power with their gorges, impressive halls and waterfalls. For our little guests there is also a playground with dragon slide. The Swiss Cave Museum features scientific information on the subject of cave exploration.


Since 2015 you have the possibilty beside the tours to discover the caves without a guide.
