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 the 15-16th century surrounded by vineyards. Thus, we could not admire the baroque hall of original frescoes, which are located in the apse and the adjacent crypt of the Romanesque church. *)
For the second time, we chose Spiez as our destination when we went on a birthday cruise on Lake Thun. Did you know that someone who has a birthday that day and proves with a valid document with a photo has a first-class cruise on the lake (and the next Lake Brienz) for free?
So on this day, we walked up to the castle, and in its courtyard, we enjoyed a great quiet time and enjoyed a beautiful summer day.
We also did not forget to walk 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. Palm trees enhance the impression of a peaceful Riviera.

Amazing article! I’m a photographer traveling here for a destination wedding next autumn. I was wondering if you remember where exactly the photo of the stone railing overlooking the water and mountains was taken? Thanks!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and I’m glad you liked the article. The photo was taken in the courtyard/park in front of Schloss Spiez. I hope you take lots of beautiful wedding photos here.
