Anyone who knows Thun only as a military town is quite mistaken. In the course of the last few years, the former industrial town has been radically transformed. Especially in the centre of the historic old town with its bridges and squares, you can now enjoy a little Italianità in countless street cafés or watch the colourful hustle and bustle and the market traders.

Situated directly on Lake Thun, with an impressive view and divided by the mighty arms of the river Aare, Thun invites you to linger. The charming old town is home to friendly boutiques and traditional shops. Numerous restaurants and hotels right on the waterfront lend a Mediterranean ambience. The castle - Thun's unmistakable landmark - towers high above the rooftops. Experience "pure Swissness" in this authentic town!
