Thun Travel Guide: 201 reviews and 770 photos

Thun, and I had been looking forward to seeing this town after reading about it on VT.

So, we arrived late afternoon, on a fine day, and went to the Tourist Information centre first to find accommodation. Then, it was time to settle in, find somewhere for Dinner, and then peruse the brochure's for planning the next few days.

Guess what! The weather changed!
Yes, it rained and wasn't the best, so we didn't do all we wanted to, but we still had a pretty good look at Thun,

Thun is lovely, and I would recommend coming here for a look, there is plenty to see and it is quite a good base for seeing the surrounding sights.

    Thun looks so beautiful - the castles are magical and the longest staircase in the world - wow :)

    I’ve never really been to Thun, that is not to the town itself, though I do know parts of the surrounding area. Thun is impressive even in wet weather, as your photos show.

    Lifelong learning :-) Never heard of Fulehung before, but now I know what it is. Cute figure!! Wow, they have crossbowers! That festival sounds magic!! Just like the Italian ones :-) Oh my god, Scherzligen Church looks absolutely fantastic! Cute from the outside but the inside is.... adorable! And even more lifelong learning - didn't know about this longest stairway either :-)
    Approx.1000 year s ago I was in Thun, at the lake, but don't remember more than a view of the lake. My god... this bakery is ... dangerous! But I like your B&B.

    Dee, gorgeous page with great photos of Thun here. It is a town in Switzerland which is still on my must visit list. The B&B sounds like my sort of thing.

    Again you are inspiring me with your tips, Dee! A trip to the German speaking part of Switzerland is something I would love to do and I should add Thun to the list of places to see.
