  • a very nice setting, just on the waterfront of the lake, and an impressive construction with a beautiful park around. definitely a must when visiting the region.  more »
  • We didn't visit the castle itself, but we did make use of the sunny day to go for a stroll around it. We walked from Oberhofen to Thun. It was lovely, the views are stunning (on a sunny day). :-)  more »
  • We found the museum contained an interesting mix of information about the castle and its former inhabitants, along with exhibits of various aspects of gentried life, such as an extensive exhibit on the life of the servant class, a lovely little collection of dolls, dollhouses and accessories, etc. Seeing the incredible attention to detail in the woodwork and furniture, both traditional European and that of the Oriental smoking room, was fascinating. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
  • The place has a nice hiking path on the right side from the lake. The take-away restaurant at the place is very nice. The cave is big and cold. The path is well-paved, but it is also small. If there are a lot of people it would be uncomfortable to enjoy the place. Overall the cave is modified to be easy for the people to walk and enjoy its beauty so if you expect something very natural, this cave might not be the answer.
