Thun Off The Beaten Path: 22 reviews and 66 photos

Beatushoehle is about 15km east of the city of Thun and another place of interest that you may visit easyly by ship or by public bus from Thun. Of course you may not compare that simple cave with the other natural sights of the Jungfrau-region, BUT it might make sense to go there on a rainy day maybe.
St. Beatushoehle is where Holy Beatus spent several years of his life in a hermitage. Next to the cave with stalagtites there is also a waterfall, a museum and a souvenirshop. When driving along the panorama-road along the noth bank of Thunersee, you have to leave that road close to Sundlauenen. When arriving by ship you just have to follow the path through the woods in order to get to Beatushoehle.
Take a look at my 2nd and 3rd picture for the great construction of the coastal-road to Beatusbucht !

The caves and the museum are open
between Palm Sunday and October daily between 10.30a.m. and 05.00p.m.
the museum closes 30 minutes later !
