Lake Thun

On more than 47 km² and surrounded by castles, picturesque villages and imposing mountains, the “Riveria of Lake Thun” welcomes its guests.

From a bird’s eye view, Lake Thun looks like a gleaming treasure of emeralds and sapphires. In summer, visitors enjoy the fresh air on sailing boats or the nostalgic paddle steamers. Daily cruises are also offered throughout winter and provide passengers with a chance to admire the lake in its cool but still charming appearance. The many bicycle and hiking trails around the lake, past enchanting vineyards and picturesque chalets, allow visitors to discover the lake from the shore. Five castles and numerous museums provide cultural entertainment.


Time for adventure: The four “Ws” of watersports

If you take to water sports like a duck to water, then Lake Thun is the perfect destination for you. Keep your balance while you whizz around on waterskis. Try acrobatic tricks while you are wakeboarding or wakeskating. And when the wind is fair you can hoist your sail and elegantly cruise the lake on your windsurfing board.


At the Lake Thun Festival even the backdrop plays a starring role
