A pleasant day can be spent on Lake Thun, not far from Interlaken in the Bernese Oberland, visiting the 3 castles around its shore - Thun, Oberhofen and Spiez. Please note weather not at its blue sky best so I have used a postcard.


see more in the "must see" section.

The shopping area in the old town is quite delightful with its small speciality shops. It reminds me very much of Chester in England as they too have walkways over the top of the shops.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:castles, lake, shopping, meeting people
  • Cons:its prone to rain :-((

    Hey, I know some of those people. It was a good day for all of us. I remember also that mountain village of Hasliberg- Reuti. Good to meet all of us.

    Lovely page - we never left the station, as it was the worst rainstorm I've ever seen. (Was sunny in Interlaken tho ;-))
