Spiez Castle



Discover the castle in the vineyards

Spiez Castle is surrounded by vineyards in what is said to be the prettiest bay in Europe. Visit the permanent exhibition in the castle museum, or one of the annually changing art exhibition. From atop the castle tower, you can savour superb views of Lake Thun and the peaks of the Bernese Oberland.

The imposing tower of Spiez Castle can be seen from miles away. Whether celebrating a knighthood or visiting an art exhibition, Spiez Castle is a cultural asset of national importance. Discover 1,300 years of history at Spiez Castle. The life story of the knight Adrian von Bubenberg, who once resided at Spiez Castle, is told in the historic exhibition rooms.

Become a knight at Spiez Castle

Children can celebrate birthdays at the castle or embark on the Knight’s Trail. By completing a three-part series of tasks at the castles of Spiez, Thun and Oberhofen, kids progress from the level of page to knave – and after passing the tests and completing a special expedition, they graduate to full knights.

Dream weddings

Built in the early Romanesque style, the thousand-year-old castle church which is free and non-denominational, adjacent to Spiez Castle is a highly popular venue for weddings. Civil ceremonies are once a month in the castle’s romantic wedding hall.

Castle grounds, gardens and café

Filled with colourful flowers, the castle grounds make a sight for sore eyes at any time of year. Take a stroll or enjoy the view of Lake Thun from a bench. On the ground floor is the castle café, where you can treat yourself to a castle breakfast, a soup, a coffee or a glass of Spiez wine. 

Photo opportunity: View from the castle tower

It’s well worth climbing the stairs of Spiez Castle to the tower above the museum, where the 360-degree views are simply breathtaking. Capture photos of reputedly the loveliest bay in Europe, the castle church, Lake Thun and the peaks of the Oberland.
