Thun Switzerland: The Best Guide to the Breathtaking Places

Nothing shall feel more magical than a town with castles, lakes, and mountains! If you’re like me who search for places like this, then Thun, Switzerland is the perfect place to be.

Thun is so exciting to visit because it does not has only one castle. But, instead, it has four!

Oberhofen Castle, Switzerland

In this blog post, I share with you information about these castles. Aside from those, I added three other attractions which I think worth visiting too in Thun. Don’t skip the When to Visit Thun and Museum Pass sections! They will really help you experience the best of this Swiss town. 

Travel Inspiration: Photos of Thun, Switzerland

A town like Thun has always been a place I always dream of going to. The reason, inspiration, and will of going to this place are rooted years ago in my childhood.

Thun, Switzerland

Ever since I received an Atlas when I turned 7 years old, Europe has always been a “big mystery” in my head. In my young eyes, the ice-capped mountains, alpine lakes, and castles are all fiction. But, of course, I know that they’re real. That’s why they’re printed in an atlas!

Thun, Switzerland

Well, it is not that they’re unreal. It’s just hard to believe that these castles and snowcapped mountains exist in this world. That is especially when all your life, all you’ve seen are beaches, coconut trees, and skyscrapers.

Thun, Switzerland

I’ve always wondered how these European towns look in person… Or, how was it like to walk along the lakeshore and see castles with mountains in the backdrop?

Thun, Switzerland

As we study world history in high school, my curiosity about Europe grew deeper even more. There were literally tens of European cities mentioned in our discussion. Yet, I was clueless about where they are or how they look like.

Thun, Switzerland (2)

Now that I’m an adult, I feel that it’s time that I go and see these places in person. It’s the effin time that I satisfy the curiosity that tormented my sanity for years! But, before I go, I must thoroughly plan my visit… so I may not fail and see the bests of my destinations. This is what this blog post is all about.

Where is Thun in Switzerland?

Thun (Thunersee in German) is a beautiful lake town located 30 kilometers or 19 miles southeast of Bern, the capital of Switzerland. When we look at the Globe, Thun is the town that surrounds the meeting point of Lake Thunersee and River Aare, one of the longest river in Switzerland. Here’s the map to visually show you where Thun is:

What’s beautiful about Thun is that it sits beside a lake, directly facing the Bernese Alps. This stunning location is a really compelling reason why we must visit Thun regardless of the castles.

Few of the mountains seen from Thun are the Niesen, Niederhorn, Eiger and Stockhorn, Monch, and Jungfrau peaks. The people of Thun must be so blessed to see such incredible and relaxing sights every day.

Thun is one of the cities that is near the Swiss Alps. If you want to know more cities near the Swiss Alps, check my article: Cities in Switzerland near the Swiss Alps Best Destinations. One of these cities is Brig, and it is the one closest to the best attractions in the Swiss Alps. Learn more about the things to do in Brig.

Best time to visit Thun

It is best to visit Thun, Switzerland, during the shoulder seasons when the weather is beautiful and when the country is not swamped with visitors. These are from April to June and from September to October. But you have to consider the following:

The weather in Thun

Weather will always be a primary deciding factor when visiting a destination. If you will be coming from the other side of the world like me, I suggest that we come to Thun during the months with the best season possible. That’s from mid-May to mid-September. 

It’s the time of the year in Thun where the clearest skies and warm temperatures around 20C or 68F occurs. It’s really the perfect climate to explore and spend time outdoors. If you’re also used to freaking hell-ish humid climates, 20C is more than enough to enjoy exploring a city.

If we are there to explore and not to meditate, why bother seeing many tourists? Besides, we don’t want to risk our travel fund just to get struck by the rain at our destinations. But, still, it depends on our preferences… and our budget.

Local events in Thun

Checking the local events like festivals and gatherings before traveling to another country is one of the best lessons I learned when I traveled to Hanoi, Vietnam

To witness how the locals behave, celebrate, and have fun is a more enjoyable way of learning the culture of a nation. It’s more fun than just exploring their city. Believe me, It’s gonna make you feel “ecstatic” if you get to experience one of their festivals or gatherings.

Here are the local events and festivals in Thun that you might want to see during the optimal travel seasons (April to October) to visit Thun:

Summer Musical on the Lake – Thunerseespiele

What are the things to do in Thun?

Here are the places I think worth visiting while in Thun. 

I arranged the list according to where they are. We will start at the destinations on the west of the Aare River. Then we’ll proceed to the heart of the town, at the east of the river. The last places we’ll discuss are located on the northern shores of Lake Thunersee, slightly away from Thun town center.

By the way, I just want to share with you these 15 Towns in the Swiss Alps too. They can be your next destination after visiting Thun. These towns are the most visited places in Switzerland as they are the town with the most scenic views in the world!

These towns are located in the Swiss countryside, and they’re pretty much close to Thun. These are the photos of these towns that inspire me to visit Switzerland.

Thun-Panorama (Wocher Panorama)

We begin our discovery of the places in Thun with an appetizer… A glimpse of the past, frozen in time. Visiting the Thun Panorama is a thing to do in Thun that you must not miss!

Where is Thun Panorama or Wocher Panorama?

In a small building in Schadau Park near the shores of Lake Thun, west of River Aare, we can find the first panorama in Switzerland and the panorama in the world.

Going here takes only 15 minutes of walk southeast from the Thun Train Station. You can also catch bus #1 from the train station and drop by Schloss Schadau station. The whole bus route takes 10 minutes. See this Google Map Route for your convenience.

What’s Thun Panorama all about?

Thun Panorama (Wocher Panorama) was painted in 1814 by Marquard Wocher of Basel, inspired by the scenic view of Bernese Oberland. The painting is a 38-meter long (125 ft) and 7.5-meter (25 ft) tall artwork that depicts the image of the small town of Thun and the surrounding ice-capped peaks.

Here is the Google Maps’ 360 shot for a preview. Feel free to move the image around! 😀

Access to Thun Panorama

Thun Panorama is a masterpiece rich in details, showing how life was like in Thun 200 years ago. The hall where it is stored is open only from mid-May to late November, 11am to 5pm, Tuesday to Sunday.

The admission fee to the panorama is 9CHF (~10USD). Kids and teens under 16 years old are free to enter. We can also get a combo ticket with the Thun Kunstmuseum for 15 CHF (~17 USD).

Schadau Castle (Schloss Schadau)

Now that we see the past from Thun’s panorama, we go to the present and check the actual historic places shown in the artwork.

The nearest historical structure/place that we can visit in Thun is the Schadau Castle. Checking out Schadau Castle is a thing to do in Thun we do next. 

Schadau Castle has a virtual 360 tour. Take a look! I suggest that you see it through a PC so you can see more details. 🙂

Schadau Castle, Thun, Switzerland

Where is Schadau Castle?

The Schadau Castle is located in Schadau Park, together and in the East of Wocher Panorama. Just beside this castle, we can see the actual mouth of River Aare with waters streaming out to Lake Thunersee.

Going to Schaudau Castle takes a 15-minute walk southeast of Thun’s Train Station. Alternatively, you can catch Bus #1 from the train station and drop by Thun, Scherzligen/Schadau station. It’s faster by 5 minutes compared to walking. Use this Google Map Route for your convenience.

What’s the History of Schadau Castle?

Not to dazzle you, but Schadau Castle is a Swiss Important National Monument, which costs more than CHF 20 million only for its recent renovations. That’s a lot of money! Perhaps it’s really worth seeing.

The first written document about Schadau Castle tells that this castle has a history that goes back to the mid-14th-century. That’s older than the discovery of the Philippines! Impressive.

Though it was only a house back then, lots of improvements were made. It was only after the second world war it was placed under protection.

The image of the castle that we can see now is the version after its last restoration in 1996, plus a few renovations in 2017. Now, the castle is sustainably used as a hotel and a restaurant.

What to do in and around Schadau Castle?

  • Even if we don’t dine inside the castle, we can still enjoy its garden. Schadau Park or garden is a local recreation area designed in English style. We can take photographs or just walk by the shore of Lake Thunersee. The park is a beautiful spot to see the view of the magnificent Eiger, Jungfrau, and Monch mountains
  • The park also has trails with trees growing for more than 200 years now. There are interactive information boards in the park trails to learn more about these trees. These boards also have a map to guide us on our tour in the English garden.
  • If I am rich, I’d probably taste the “timeless flavor” meals Schloss Schadau serves. There are wines, breakfast, lunch, afternoon meals to taste! What’s more interesting, they offer a picnic meal served in the garden.
  • The castle is also a hotel. You can stay for a night here if you desire. 

Access to Schadau Castle

The park is accessible anytime. The hotel and restaurant are only open from 08:30am to 11:00 pm (Monday to Saturday) 08:30am to 10.00 pm (Sunday). Spontaneous visitors coming after 10am should call first to make sure of the availability of the food/place.

You can ask them questions through email ( [email protected] ) or calls ( +41 33 222 25 00 ). Here’s Schloss Schadau’s website to know more.

Townhall Square

From the western side of Thun, we now move to the eastern side, where most of the exciting places in Thun can be found. It is also where the best things to do in Thun await us. One of those is the Townhall Square.

Thun Castle from Thun townhall square, Thun, Switzerland
Thun Castle from Thun townhall square

By the way, Thun has an island in the middle of River Aare. In the northern portion of the island, we can find Mcdonald’s (I mentioned because it’s a place where I can buy affordable meals. LOL). Then, on the southern part of the island, we can find an old bridge. A quick stop to take selfies and photographs.

By the way, Lucerne is a beautiful big town/city as well like Thun. It has structures that are as old as the buildings in Thun Townhall Square. Read my article 15 Reasons Why You Should Visit Lucerne to learn more about Lucerne.

Where is Thun’s Townhall Square?

The Townhall square is only a 10-minute walk from Thun Train station north, along the northern riverbed of Aare. You can also hop on bus #1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 31, 32, 42 to get to Thun’s Townhall Square. Alight in Marktgasse Bus stop. You may use this Google Maps Route for instant geo-points and directions in the map.

What to do in Thun’s Townhall Square?

Thun’s Townhall Square is the free-est part of Thun we can visit. There, we can feel that we’re living in the medieval age. The cobblestone streets and the preserved buildings will help us visualize the history we learned from the textbooks.

Thun Townhall Square, Thun, Switzerland
Thun Townhall Square

Thun’s Townhall Square is the best portion of the town to begin exploring the ancient parts of Thun. By visiting the square, we can immediately see some of the oldest structures in Thun like:

  • The town hall constructed in the 15th century 
  • Hotel Rathaus, the oldest brick house in Thun, built during the 14th-century
  • A late-baroque style building called Burgerhaus Thun, built in the 18th-century.
  • Platzschulhaus, another beautiful 18th-century structure. 
  • Hotel Krone and Hotel Metzgern, the two former guild houses.

Thun Castle is already visible from the town hall square… Look at the 360-view I share above. Isn’t it lovely? Remove the modern vehicles and replace them with horses, and it’s already a time machine to the 18th century!

Thun Castle

For me, castles decorate the city skyline way more graciously than today’s skyscrapers. Though the 500-meter-plus-meter buildings look magnificent and give a country a spot on the international stage, they can’t display cultural identity and wonder as castles do. Visiting Thun Castle is really a must-do thing in Thun.

Where is Thun Castle?

In the maps, Thun castle is located directly north of the Thun train station, northeast of Townhall Square. It is an 11-minute walk from the train station.

Though you may take the bus, bus stops aren’t near to the castle. The available bus routes will also involve a lot of walking before you reach Thun Castle.

The best way, I think, is to visit first the square. Thun Townhall Square is only a 5-minute walk away from Thun Castle.

Things to know about Thun Castle

The Thun Castle is a 12th-century administrative castle built in the direction of the Zahringen dukes. It is also a museum that houses historical artifacts, emphasizing the history of Thun.

Thun Castle has five floors plus two additional areas, a cellar, and towers. They contain numerous items from weapons to clothes to musical instruments to pottery. Here are the things that you can find for each area of the castle:

Kunstmuseum Thun

Thun is also a place where the ancient and modern mix together. If we can find articles from the past in Thun Castle, the other end of the spectrum lies in Kunstmuseum Thun. Here we can find numerous contemporary artworks created by modern Swiss artists – a great place to see in Thun.

Visiting Kunstmuseum Thun after Thun Castle is like a jump in time. A perfect experience to make us recognize that the only constant thing in this world is perpetual change. It is another unmissable thing to do in Thun.

Kunstmuseum Thun, Thun, Switzerland

Where is Kunstmuseum Thun

Kunstmuseum Thun is located along the northern riverside of the Aare River, near the old bridge. However, the museum’s entrance is on the other side of the building along Hofstettenstrasse street. It is a 7-minute walk from the Thun train station, passing the Thun island in the middle of the Aare River.

What is to see in Kunstmuseum Thun?

Kunstmuseum Thun emphasizes the works of regional artists creating Swiss pop art, landscapes, and graphic works. It has a plethora of artwork collections from municipal and private donations.

The museum does not place the artwork in a permanent exhibition. Though it houses thousands of artworks (around 7000), most are not all displayed in public. They are kept in a secret depot that can’t be accessed by anyone.

Access to Kunstmuseum Thun

Kunstmuseum Thun is closed every Monday. From Tuesday to Sunday, it is open from 10 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon. However, Wednesdays are “special,” the opening hours are extended for another two hours until 7 in the evening.

The admission fee to the museum is for adults is 10 CHF, 8 CHF for students, and the kids under 16 are free to enter. Visitors with Museum Pass can enter without fees.

Hunegg Castle

The ultimate destination in Thun lies at Lake Thunersee’s lakeshore, a few minutes from Thun town center. But before we go straight to it after exploring the town, let’s make first a stopover to another castle along the way.

This stopover castle destination is called Hunegg Castle. And it is a castle that also has the Swiss Heritage Sate of National Significance title. Visiting Hunegg castle is a thing to do in Thun.

Hunegg Castle, Switzerland
Tiger 99CC BY-SA 3.0, via Wikimedia Commons

What’s Hunegg Castle all about?

Hunegg Castle was build during the mid 19th century for the Prussian Baron Albert Emil Otto von Parpart. Because it is young, it seems to contain lesser historical significance compared to Thun Castle.

However, the superb interiors and the meticulous upkeeping made the castle a compelling place to visit. The visitors mostly say that Hunegg Castle can bring you back to the 1900s. The rooms and the fixtures inside are so maintained that they appear like the owner just left yesterday.

For me, the best part of the Hunegg is the terrace. It is the spot in the castle that has views of Lake Thun and the Bernese Alps. Yet, I haven’t been inside the castle, so yeah, just watch this video I found (hahaha!):

Where is Hunegg Castle?

Hunegg Castle is located in Hilterfingen Municipality, a town southeast of Thun, approximately 5 to 10-minute bus ride away from Thun.

In going to Hunegg Castle, you need to get a bus ride and drop by Hilterfingen Post bus station:

  1. From the Thun Train Station, Take Bus #21 or #25 
  2. If you’re from Townhall Square, proceed to Lauitor Bus station and take Bus #21 or #25
  3. If you just came from Kunstmuseum Thun, Proceed to Thunerhof bus station and catch bus #21
  4. If you want to visit Hunegg Castle from Oberhofen Castle, hop on bus #21 or #25 in Oberhofen Dorf bus station.

Hilterfingen Post bus station isn’t directly at the side of Hunegg Castle. You have to walk for about 4 minutes northwestward along Schoren road to get to Hunegg Castle.

Alternatively, you can take a boat ride from Thun to Oberhofen Dorf. But it’s gonna take you another bus ride to arrive in Hunegg Castle.

What to see in Hunegg Castle?

Here are the things that I found very interesting when I browsed the Hunegg Castle website for the “things” to see within the Hunegg Castle:

  • Original art nouveau interior – a home decor museum that showcases the preserved style in the 1900s. 
  • Swiss Gastronomy Museum – here, we can find items that portray the Swiss Gastronomy Culture, hotel industry, and other articles about their food and drink culture.
  • Hunegg Castle Terrace. See here the boats cruising in the Lake Thunersee together with the stunning Bernese Alps in the background.
  • Hunegg Castle Park – Explore the beautifully landscaped castle grounds with different trees like multi-stemmed cypresses, exotic redwoods, and Lebanon Cedars.

Oberhofen Castle

Our ultimate destination from Thun, the best thing to do from Thun, as well!

It is the castle that will make our medievalistic fantasy a reality. Oberhofen is really a place to visit from Thun. Like Hunegg Castle, Oberhofen Castle is recognized as a Swiss Heritage Site of National Significance – a place to be in Switzerland.

Oberhofen Castle, Switzerland (2)
Oberhofen Castle

The view of the Oberhofen Castle, the lake, and the mountains in the background look just perfect. It’s a scene combining the elements of fantasy, history, and nature. It’s the scenery you can’t miss capturing in a photo.

Facts about Oberhofen Castle

Let’s make Oberhofen Castle even “more interesting” with the mind-blowing facts about it:

  • Oberhofen Castle was built in the 13th-century. The time that the castle was constructed is also the age when the Mongolian Empire was founded by Genghis Khan.
  • The castle’s dungeon tower has walls that are 2 meters or 6.6 feet thick! A man with a typical height could even fit inside perpendicular to the thickness of the walls.
  • Outside of the castle structure is the 2.5-hectare (6.2 acres) garden. That’s almost the size of three baseball fields! An ideal place to stroll around with the views of mountains and lakes.

Final thoughts about the places in Thun

Thun could really be a fulfilling destination for people who have a deep interest in history and architecture. I think it is best for people who just want to sightsee, relax, and enjoy nature.

For me, the Bernese mountains and Thunersee lake are the “biggest” factors why Thun looks so beautiful (at least in photos and videos). The harmony between the preserved century-old structures and nature in Thun gives visitors a fantasy-like experience. Something that nobody could ever have in modern cities.

Ultimately, what will matter when we visit these destinations is our appreciation. It’s the one that will define our “travel” satisfaction. Let our curiosity drive us, and let awe fill us.
