E12***38The small town of Spiez is located on the edge of a bay on the south bank of Lake Thun. It is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and has fresh air. It is known as one of the most beautiful towns in Switzerland. The small town of Spitz is also a base for yacht lovers, and a must pass to some resort villages to the south. The road climbs up to the northern foot of the Alps, and there are little villages in the middle, and the wooden cottages set off clusters of flowers. There is a winding path from Spiez to Gstaad in the southwest corner of the canton of Bern. It is where the four valleys meet and is an ideal ski center.
