I came to Thun Thun, rented a bicycle at the free rental car near the train station, and decided to explore the beautiful town next to the Traken by cycling. The first impression of me is the typical European town. The narrow streets with high and low undulations pass through the center of the city. The streets are clean and yet warm, and the quiet flowing river passes through the narrow and quiet old town.

Oberhofen Castle is one of the most castles in the state of Berne. In the 12th century, the castle was built as the main hall of Oberhofen. When the Duke of Chailingen dominated the belt, it served as a fortress in the city of Thun. Later, due to the demise of the Chailingen family, the Haupsburg family came in. After entering the 20th century, it was acquired by a US lawyer and a consortium was established. Oberhofen Castle is now a museum of history and is open to the public. The interior of the library, Turkish-style smoking room, kitchen and other areas reflect the interior style of Gothic, Revival, Baroque and other eras, and is highly valued by tourists from all over the world. Oberhofen Castle, situated beside the beautiful Lake Thun, is impressed by its romantic medieval style and towering towers. Strolling through the different historical rooms, it is conceivable that the life of the Bernese people of the 16th and 19th centuries was alive: the elegant summer hall, the Gothic revival-style restaurant and the amazing weapons in the armory. Imagine if you were listening to a concert in the concert hall and then stepping into the Turkish-style smoking room overlooking the lake and the mountains. What a wonderful thing. The chapel with unique 15th-century frescoes in the castle is still used for christening and weddings.
