About
HÜNEGG CASTLE A fairytale castle on the shores of Lake Thun Hünegg was built between 1861 and 1863 and is modelled after the ones of the French Loire region. The castle museum is dedicated to the residential decor of the Art Nouveau and Historicism periods and gives the impression that time has stood still since 1900. A carefully designed public park surrounds the castle and features native and exotic trees, many of which date back to the castle’s construction.

Fascinating castle, with a welath of artefacts on display.
Aug 2020
Schloss Hünneg is really excellent. Untouched for around 100 years and with a vast array of artefacts on display, all in context. Good descriptions, including in English for the most part. The wood carving is particularly impressive. A beautiful location, easily accessible by public transport (Buses 21 and 25 from Thun, or a ferry on the lake). A nice cafe, with a basic selection of light snacks and drinks. Pretty gardens. Other reviewers have suggested an hour, but we had no difficulty in taking three hours to look around. Staff were very welcoming and guests are allowed to take photographs (no flash).

Overall, some echoes of The Hill House (Glasgow, Scotland), Blackwell (Bowness-on-Windermere, England) and - to a lesser extent - Castle Drogo (Devon, England).

rather kitschy
May 2020
located on a little hillside overlooking the lake, the panorama is maybe the nicest here. the castle is rather kitschy, especially compared to older and nicer constructions along the like like the castle Oberhofen. but anyway, touring around the lake, it is worth a stop and a stroll through the park.

Beautiful gardens, the castle was closed due a wedding
Aug 2018 • Solo
Schloss Hünneg is located in a little town called Hilterfingen, in the lakeside of Thunersee, a lake in Switzerland. It was built in 19th Century in a Renaissance style. I walked around the gardens, which are beautiful. In fact, from here you can see beautiful views of the castle and surroundings. Pitifully, I could not enter in the castle (August-2018) due to a wedding. Next time. Nice.

Enchanting Castle
Aug 2018 • Couples
The castle is beautifully restored and furnished down to the last details. Located on a slight hill with sweeping views of Lake Thun, you can only imagine living here and seeing these views everyday! I have been to a lot of castles but this one stands out due to the amount of gorgeous furniture and accessories on display. Be sure to check out the views from the various rooms. The exterior is quite charming too - everything you would want in a castle!

Fairy tale castle on Lake Thun!
Jun 2017 • Family
We did not purchase tickets in advance. We had no problem getting in. We were given a card in English to help us navigate. This was probably the fanciest castle that we toured while in Europe. I mean come on - it had a two story bathroom! There is also a cafe but it was not yet open when we were there.

Castle with original interior

This castle has remarkable views of lake Brienz and also has furnishings from the last occupant of the castle. It is situated on lovely wooded ground and has a pretty garden. There is a café. English cards are available for each room.
