Cruise on Lake Thun

Experience Lake Thun from the boat

  • Thun
When sailing on the biggest Bernese lake, Lake Thun, enjoy the beautiful Alpine panorama comfortably from the water. From Spiez you have perfect connections direction Thun andInterlaken.

Everyday there are numerous scheduled boats which connect lakeside communes and the popular tourist attractions. Whether Thun, Gunten, Faulensee or the Beatenbucht: From Spiez the scheduled boats depart regularly to the popular destinations. The absolute highlight is a trip on the nostalgic steamboat Blümlisalp.
On board time seems to pass by slower: The boats quietly glide through the turquoise blue water and a cooling breeze blows towards you, whilst you enjoy a view of the passing mountain tops. With a surface area of 47.69 square kilometers, Lake Thun is the biggest body of water which is entirely in the canton of Bern. But not only the views in the distance, the boat trip has more to offer: The scheduled boats from BLS Schifffahrt AG are all equipped with restaurants. Indulge yourself in a small snack or refreshing apéro on board.
There are always regularly culinary themed trips on Lake Thun. It is worth a look into the seasonal programme of the BLS Schifffahrt AG.

A boat trip can be ideally combined with an excursion; from Spiez, a visit to the St. Beatus Caves or a trip to the Niederhorn is worthwhile. Attractive combination tickets are available for these excursions.
