Thun is located right on the place where the Aare river leaves the Lake of Thun.

Originally a celtic founding (dunum = fortified hill) it has been a popular place for settling and travelling through thousands of years.

After a touristic boom in the 19th century it lost its function of a place for staying of tourists to the villages in the Alps. An advantage for the traveller in our times - it is less touristy and remained authentic Swiss athmosphere of the past.
