On the shore path of Lake Thun we approach Thun ...
... and walk past a Brahms memorial.
Here in a house that was demolished in 1933, lived and composed in the summers of 1886 - 1888
You have blessed this land since ancient times with your song to new glory
The outflow from Lake Thun into the Aare is regulated by weirs. They are designed as photogenic, flower-decorated pedestrian bridges.
Here we stand on the bridge to Mühleplatz.
The Obere Hauptgasse with its typical Bernese houses
The town hall from the 16th century on the town hall square
Once again the town hall square. On the left is a gothic house.
The Thun Castle. Impressive and mighty it is enthroned on the hill above the city. It dates from the 12th century and was built by the Dukes of Zähringen.
The castle from a different perspective.
Once again the weir at the Mühleplatz (mill square). In the background is the town church with its tower from around 1330. The remaining medieval church was demolished in the 18th century and replaced by a new building.
