Located just 6kms from Thun, is the delightful little village of Einigen and its 10th century historic Church. Just a short detour off the main road.

The Church is set in a pretty position overlooking the Lake, probably why is is popular for weddings, what great photo's you would have! It is also a much visited pilgrim site, as it is the original mother Church of the twelve Churches of Lake Thun.
It was closed, but if open, there is a font dating to 1446 with the Bubenberg coats of arms, the baroque pulpit and a 1948 organ. A walk around the adjoining cemetery was interesting, and the views were lovely!

As you drive along the road, check out the lakeside house with all the saucepan's hanging, rather different!

Dorfstrasse, Einigen, Spiez 3646
