Berner Alpen does not exist only of high mountains, but also of lovely alpine lakes and some of them are big enough for cruise-ships. Brienzer See and Thuner See are the largest lakes in the Berner Alpen and cruising them is a lot of fun because both of them could easily be done within a single day, especially when you always stay on the cruiseships or choose the stations carefully, where you are leaving the ships, explore lovely places like Spiez, Schloss Oberhofen or Huenibach, Thun etc. and continue by the next ship.
All of the ships have a 1st class : the total upper deck, and a 2nd class in the lower decks.
Normally on mondays and at special days during the lower season day-tickets are available for both lakes for just 20 sfr / 13 Euros for both lakes.
All of the ships on Thunersee and Brienzersee belong to the swiss railway-system and are also included in the "Regionalpass Berner Oberland" !
