Thun takes you on a journey through time: the historic old town, with its characteristic raised pavements, castle and museums will whisk you away to bygone times.

On a walk on the Schlossberg, the town of Thun is literally at your feet. In the sun, the parks along the banks of the lake and River Aare are tempting spots to stop and relax. In Thun, several of the town’s historic buildings have been signposted, and information brochures are available in a variety of languages.
