Lake Thun Travel Guide - Tourism Information
Travel Guide - Tourist Information
Interlaken name comes from ‘Inbetween lakes’
– namely Lake Brienz and Lake Thun.
They call it Thunersee – See being lake in German.
So Lake Brienz becomes Brienzersee.
There are boats that depart from the dock behind the
Interlaken West station. Swiss or Eurail Pass is valid
for transit on Lake Thun located at Spiez.
The lake is 10 miles long and it will take about 1.5
hours from Interlaken to Thun on a boat. There is spectacular
scenery along the way - Lake Thun is surrounded by rolling
hills dotted with quaint Swiss chalets, and majestic
Ferries are a wonderful form of transportation. In
typical Swiss tradition, ferries are timed so you can
combine train and ferry travel. Coming in from Zurich,
a great idea is to take the train to Thun in stead of
Interlaken. You can take a ferry from just across the
street from the rail station to go for a leisurely cruise
You can take great pictures on your boat journey.
