Spiez Travel Guide: 55 reviews and 157 photos

Spiez is a small town (pop 10,500),beautifully located at a bay of Lake Thun.

It is a very popular base for tourists, well known for water sports and a picturesque historical ensemble with castle and church on a hill right by the lake.

It has some nice hotels and restaurants and is a perfect transportation hub for the Bernese Alps, Swiss cities like Bern and Basel as well as the Valais and Lago Maggiore (since it is located on the Lötschberg - Simplon train route).

    Hi Ingo, nice to see you online. I was also in Spiez recently -- but only for 34 minutes while changing trains on my way from Frankfurt to Milan.
