Lake Thun Castles

Lake Thun (Thunersee) overlooks Alpine peaks and is the location of three medieval castles and an impressive nineteenth century replica.

The castles in Spiez, Thun and Oberhofen and the castle Hünegg, built in 1861, and their museums are open to the public.

The Hünegg castle was built after the example of the castles in the French Loire region and is a good example of Historicism.
