Lovey historic castle. It's only a short walk up, not a difficult walk. We didn't go inside but you get beautiful views over the lake and city.

Very well kept castle. The view from the turrets is amazing - well worth the climb up! A small museum inside gives an idea of the importance of Thun's strategic position.

Totally worth a visit if you are in the area! The castle has also a museum inside, with many clothes, weapons, tools and artifacts from the middle Ages. Go all the way up,the view of the city from the towers is very pretty.

The castle is lovely and intersting, but let's face it most people are over castled once you have been to a few in Europe, the stand out for this one is the history of the area and Swiss history. Would highly recommend

Everything there is a bit costly... But I think this worth it. Wasn't that easy to find with a car... Definitely should travel there only by public transportation!

This is a great sight to see on your travel, preferably during a nice sunny day. When you come to this place, you can transition from modern life to medieval times. You can enter the fortification but to enter the castle/museum, you would need to...More

I came to Thun by train, but I did notice quite a big parking lot underneath the Aldi on Grabenstrasse (there's a Tamoil gas station in front of it). If you go to the castle via the winding road right next to the roundabout... More
