Schlossberg viewpoint in Thun

Panoramic views over Thun old town, Lake Thun and the mountains

Climb the historic staircase from Thun old town up to the Schlossberg. At the top, you can stop and rest a while on one of the benches in the little park next to the Stadtkirche. The panoramic view from the Schlossberg is fantastic: perfect for a souvenir photo or two!

The Schlossberg, with its white castle, is the emblem of Thun. This magnificent viewpoint can be reached on foot or with the lift from the car park for a more leisurely option.
