Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So much to appreciate and admire in the gorgeous atmospheric Old Town. Moving from the Station, walked along grand traffic-free Bälliz on the way to lovely Rathausplatz.

After lunch strolled along the delightful Obere Hauptgasse with its arches above street level. Next up was the marvellous Castle with its fine museum.

From the apertures of which we saw the impressive Central Church Of Thun that was only a short walk further.

Another treasure is the splendid wooden bridge known as Obere Schleuse.

After visiting the Thun Castle above, descend down to this compact cute old town.
Winding streets and walk around the river will reward you with great sites of this provincial town. Plenty of outside cafes to have a break and enjoy the beauty.

A leisurely stroll along the Aare, watching surfers at the wooden bridge, strolling through the beautiful old town. Thun has a lot to offer and is beautiful. A small town worth seeing to linger. There are plenty of cozy restaurants and cafes and in most places you can sit outside.

the old city center of Thun is definitely worth a daytripp to stroll around the roads and along the river, with its bridges and lively areas. mostly car free, it is easy to access and get around.

Strange that we were on our way to Lucerne - you could be forgiven for thinking that the old wooden bridges belonged in Lucerne and not Thun. A lovely area of historic buildings, a castle the river and its wooden bridges.
There was a lot of action happening on the water as the thrill seekers surfed the turbulent waters at the locks.
Great little town.

For me Thun is one of the most beautiful cities in the world! The old beautiful centre, the castle, the view, the lake, the river. All is just perfect.
Lots of shopping opportunity too!

An absolutely beautiful covered bridge in the middle of one of the prettiest old towns in the area. The water has a pretty hue to it and the bridge is very picturesque. Saw two guys on surf boards riding the rush of water going through the locks, Very entertaining . Must see it all.

A beautiful Swiss 'alt statd.' with hidden surprises. The panoramic view from the castle is breathtaking. The surfing at the wooden bridge is too, too cool.
