Fischbalmen infantry bunker


Excursions for guests
Guided tour through a historic military facility. An experience for young and old.
Embark on an exciting journey through time during the Second World War. Hitler and his allies had encircled the Alpine republic and there was a danger that Switzerland would also be occupied. For this reason, fortifications were built in the mountains as a defense strategy. One such bunker can be found in Beatenbucht on Lake Thun.
Visit the Fischbalmen infantry bunker on a guided tour and learn more about the history of the Reduit.

The guided tour of the fortress lasts around one and a half hours.
Meeting point: in front of the Beatenbucht restaurant at the Niederhornbahn valley station
Clothing: a jacket and good shoes are recommended
