Thun is a little city nestled in Bern Canton’s Bernese Highlands, at the lower end of the popular Lake Thun. It is the gateway to Bernese Oberland. This historic old town is about a kilometer away from the shore of the lake, on Aare River. The old town houses a castle that was built in the 12th century and a museum.
This city offers different attractions for different seasons namely summer and winter. While summer is the time for enjoying water sports and spending time at the beach, winter is the time for skiing and hiking.
Take cheap flights to Thun in summer to walk around the old town and visit the castle. Wocher Panorama should also be seen in Schadau Park. It is a 360 degree circular painting that is 7.5 m high and 38 m long, depicting the 1810 town-life of Thun.
During summers, you can go for diving, surfing, sailing and, of course, bathing in Lake Thun.
