The mediaeval castle above the town of Thun is a prominent eye catcher
at the entrance to the Bernese Oberland Region.
The complex was built by the Dukes of Zähringen at the beginning of the 12th century. Located in the almost unaltered preserved dungeon, the castle tower, is the so called Knight’s Hall, one of the best conserved representation halls of the Middle Ages in Europe.
The corner towers allow for an unequalled view over the
Alps, lake and town. The castle’s five storeys house the historic museum,
which features the regional history as well as special exhibits on different
cultural-historical and current topics.
