Schloss Schadau is another nice palace of Berner Alpen, that is mostly overseen by the tourists, although it is just about 2 km east of the city of Thun. Schloss Schadau is dating back to the middle of the 19th century and it was built for a rich banker from Neuchatel. Nowadays you may see inside that palace the "Museum of Gastronomy" with various fancy cork-screws, precious china, cooking-books and menus and in another part of the palace you may see the largest painting in Switzerland : It was made by Marquard Wocher in 1814 and shows the city of Thun in a size of 39x7,5 meters !!
Inside that palace you will also be able to dine in a speciality-restaurant named "Arts Restaurant"

The gastronomy-museum is open Tue-Thu 02.00-05.00p.m.
The "Arts restaurant" is open daily except mondays
for reservations call: 03 32 22 25 00
