Guided tour “Jewels of Schadau”

  • Thun

Discover the Thun Culture Mile and take a stroll through Schadau Park

The tour follows the banks of the River Aare to the Culture Mile’s other cultural and historical highlights: Schadau Castle, built in the 19th century in the style of Romantic Historicism; the Thun-Panorama, the world’s oldest surviving 360° painting; and Scherzligen church, a 1000-year-old church on Lake Thun.

On the 700 m riverbank that forms the heart of this tour, you’ll soon see why the town cast such a spell over artists like Brahms and Kleist. The Thun Culture Mile takes you from Thun station along the water to Schadau Park, which is designed in the English landscape style. You can either book onto the classic tour or the longer tour, which includes the Thun-Panorama.

Personal tip
“Schadau Park and its majestic castle; the impressive 1000-year-old church of Scherzligen; and the unique 360° construction of the Thun-Panorama were fascinating. The more contemporary architecture of the Culture and Convention Centre or the Seepark Hotel form an interesting contrast to the historical buildings.”
