Spiez Castle – experience 1,300 years of history
Spiez Castle and the Castle Church are elegantly located on a peninsula on Lake Thun. 1,300 years of history can be experienced in the Castle Museum. The early baroque ceremonial hall, High Middle Age knights' graffiti and two castle kitchens are the highlights. Children can enjoy trying their hand at different things, 3D viewers and such features as a knights' trail. The tower provides an incomparable 360° panoramic view. In a special exhibition for 2017 "Bergzauber und Wurzelspuk – Ernst Kreidolf (1863-1956) and the Alps", the much-loved Alpine flower fairy-tales and winter fairy-tales of Kreidolf are displayed, along with previously unseen works. A varied supporting programme accompanies the castle season: public guided tours, presentations, full-moon nights in the Castle, artists' studios and events for children and families... You will also find a shop and café in the museum.
Another jewel of art history is the Romance Castle Church with its frescoes. A park, rose and baroque herb gardens around the Castle invite you to linger even longer. Spiez Castle is also an excellent destination for groups: the most varied choice of themed guided tours is available and aperitifs from small & fine to a hearty buffet can be booked. Spiez Castle and the church are also popular for weddings and other celebrations.
