High above Lake Thun lie the St. Beatus stalactite caves. Inside the mountain you can experience the world of stalactite formations in halls, grottos and gorges. A fantastic experience!

The Sigriswil panorama bridge
At around 340 metres, the Sigriswil suspension bridge spans the Gummischlucht. You should be a little bit free from giddiness when crossing the bridge. You will be rewarded with a magnificent view of Lake Thun, the Niesen and the Stockhorn.

Our special tip: City tour "Uncanny Thun"
For a slightly different approach to the history of Thun, take a guided tour with a night watchman. He takes you on a journey through the centuries. He will reveal many of Thun's eerie secrets, which will give you goose bumps - especially as these are real historical events.
