Don't miss to see the palace of Spiez also from inside, it is beautifully furnished and from the tower you will have an excellent view over the lake and the surrounding mountains. Next to the palace wine is grown and Spiez is also a popular place to go for a vacation, with plenty of great hotels by the lake, but it is a lot more quiet than Interlaken. Visiting the palace of Spiez is easiest, when you arrive by ship, because the train-station is in a distance of 1500 meters from the palace.
