  • Nice little castle, well worth the steps from the city center. We didn’t have time to visit the interior. You can walk around and through the castle outside. Very nice photo opps of the castle, the...  more »
  • it looks imposing, this castle-fortress above the city, and walking the steep staircases up is worth the effort, even if the building itself is quiet a mixture of construction through the centuries...  more »

  • Really neat castle! It was cloudy when we were there, but apparently it's a really great view from the very top. Anyways it was cool to get a little more history of that time period in Switzerland.
  • A good short tour with various historic items to view. There are great views of Thun from the towers. Reasonably priced and not overly busy with a great restaurant nearby.
  • Well signed uphill route or if you prefer a short trip you could use the stairs direct to the castle. There you can enjoy the view and take a rest or take a drink at the restaurant - bar inside the castle.
  • Well maintained castle and the elevator from the town level to the castle is very practical. Exhibition is clear and available in multiple languages including English. Fantastic views from the donjon over the city, lake and Alps. It’s a pity there are only a view items on display.
  • This was recommended in the guide book but exhibits were thinly spread out. Some of the exhibits were interesting others much less so. It was an ok thing to do on a rainy Tuesday in the Bernese Oberland. Castle is impressive and there are quite good views (but much less impressive than other views available in the area).
