Scattered around Thun is many historic buildings.
This is one I came across.
The Knabenschützenhaus was built for the boy crossbow archers in 1583, and was renovated to its original form in 1983. The boy Archer's can be traced back to the 16th century in Thun. Only boys were allowed to shoot crossbows, and that is why it is called the "Boy's shooting Lodge." Girl's have been allowed in since 1960.
Accross the street, is the shooting range, which is used throughout the summer for the summer shooting programme of the cadets.
It is the boys' clubhouse, built in 1583 for the boys Crossbowmen.
In 1983, it was restored to how it is now. No girls were allowed until 1960.
Directions: Located on the corner of Bern Tor Platz
