Just fantastic. This is a beautiful lake with lots of tourist possibilities. Covered bridges, great cycling and a very nice ambience.

The region is like a fairy tale. Thun is a cosy, small, relaxed city with small exclusive shops in the old town. You have everything at one place: The lake, the mountains, thee small relaxed city, restaurants. Interlaken on the other side of the lake is very touristic but also beautiful, it is the starting point of many interesting places.

The lake are amazing with snowy mountains on the background. The light hit beautifully and especially in the morning when half of mountain is in the sun , leaving the lake turquoise moody blue.

We stopped here on our way to Interlaken and were mesmerized. Great place to rest and enjoy the beauty. There were people doing scuba diving and other water sports.

My fiancé and I had gone to Bern for the day, and on our return trip we stopped at Thun to wander around and to take the lake boat to Spiez. Despite the somewhat dreary and misty day, the views were gorgeous. The area is absolutely stunning. The cruise down the river took 50 minutes and was free with our... More

We were staying in Bern, and luckily I had already heard a little about Lake Thun. The tourist bureau in Bern doesn’t promote this excursion strongly. However, we think the boat trip on the lake is gorgeous and well worth a day excursion from Bern. We took the train from Bern, with each adult ticket costing 32 swiss francs return... More

Took the boat from Interlaken West and got off board at Thun. Views are spectacular. The staff were not very friendly though. We got to get on the first class free because of our Eurail pass
