While the world considers Switzerland to be the home to mountaintop adventures, wise travelers know that there is more than just skiing in the Swiss Alps. Set at the lower end of Lake Thun, the city of Thun is the gate to the Bernese Oberland. Its historic Old Town makes for a stunning Old World European experience and is located about a kilometer from the shore of the lake, on the river Aare. Thun’s castle dates to the 12th century and is crowned by turrets. Thun Castle also affords visitors tremendous views of the lake and Alps and boasts a museum in the center of Thun’s Old Town. If you are not experiencing the equally beguiling Schadau Castle, having a relaxing stroll by Lake Thun, or enjoying a shopping spree at Bälliz, consider a visit to the Spielzeugmuseum Thun, which features a vast collection of children’s toys dating back to the 1850s.
