A quick stop in Spiez

On the southern shore of Lake Thun, there is a small town of Spiez situated. The medieval castle, which dominates the village, is one of five that you can admire when you go for a ride around the turquoise Lake Thun.

Unfortunately, we didn´t have much time to visit its landmarks – the medieval castle from 15-16th century surrounded by vineyards. Thus, we could not admire the baroque hall or original frescoes, which are located in the apse and the adjacent crypt of the Romanesque church. *)

On the other hand, we at least walked through the port, which is a mooring of countless species of sailboats, motorboats, and yachts, and also where the cruise liners sail around the lake.
