Fancy a romantic picnic for two, or spending an enjoyable day over the barbeque with the family? Bonstettenpark in Thun offers inviting barbecue points, green lawns and a kids’ playground. Take a stroll through the beautiful nature reserve and savour views of Lake Thun and a majestic mountain backdrop.
Bonstettenpark belongs to the town of Thun, a picturesque recreation area on the banks of deep blue Lake Thun that is open to the public all year round. Inviting barbecue points, green lawns and a kids’ adventure playground attract visitors of all ages. A small wood, several avenues and the nearby nature reserve of Gwattlischenmoos encourage visitors to take their time exploring. A long walk through tranquil Bonstettenpark and along Lake Thun is a captivating experience at any time of year. Numerous benches beneath shady trees provide places to rest.
In winter, prepare to be entranced by a landscape glittering with ice and illuminated white by the snowy peaks of the Bernese Oberland. In summer, a soft breeze ruffles your hair as you saunter over the wooden footbridge. The bridge, set against a majestic background of mountains, is a much-loved photo opportunity. Come and see for yourself on a day trip to an oasis of relaxation. Rent a bicycle at Velospot in Thun or stroll from the centre of town to the park via the banks of the lake.
