Took train from Lucerne and glad we did. The views from Schloss Thun were breathtaking. Well cared for castle with great walk through museum. The town is also a lovely place to spend an afternoon on your way to Bern and back to Lucerne.

I just happened to come to Thun because I had some problems with the phone. I thought that if I left the venue, I would be extremely regretful. Going round in the small but beautiful town is something you should try here. My research is that you should go round to take pictures with your eyes first and then take... More

Lovey historic castle. It's only a short walk up, not a difficult walk. We didn't go inside but you get beautiful views over the lake and city.

Very well kept castle. The view from the turrets is amazing - well worth the climb up! A small museum inside gives an idea of the importance of Thun's strategic position.

Totally worth a visit if you are in the area! The castle has also a museum inside, with many clothes, weapons, tools and artifacts from the middle Ages. Go all the way up,the view of the city from the towers is very pretty.

The castle is lovely and intersting, but let's face it most people are over castled once you have been to a few in Europe, the stand out for this one is the history of the area and Swiss history. Would highly recommend

Everything there is a bit costly... But I think this worth it. Wasn't that easy to find with a car... Definitely should travel there only by public transportation!

Explored this castle with my daughter and she loved it. It is on the smaller side but very well preserved. All the exhibits are in German, French and English which is not very common in Switzerland. The very top floor as some small items for children to place with. And the climb up to the turrets is well worth the... More

If u ever visit Thun, don't miss this place. For me, it was worth the visit because I have never visited a castle before. Thumbs up!
