What a beautiful setting. It is impossible to get a bad picture of this lake. You can take a beautiful picture from any spot along the lake or from a distance. Difficult to describe and you have to go there to see this beautiful location. If you want the best wedding photos I can see this lake being the right... More

We just loved our visit to Thun, Schloss Thun, and the lake. We spent several hours walking around and had lunch. Thun has a beautiful lakeside promenade and great spots to eat along the water. It is an easily walkable town that is very underrated in our opinion.

Thun is a lovely town and the lake Thunersee and its surrounding mountains are lovelier. A boat ride there is a must. The best place is where the Aare river flows into the lake. The old buildings add to the charm of the whole scene.
