Spiez is a small village down by lake Thun.
Besides the views of the Lake, a visit to Spiez must also include it's castle, and an old church, a thousand years old, and open to public.
The sunset in the small marina of Spiez is also a great moment.
Spiez is in a short distance from Interlaken at the south-bank of the Thunersee. In Spiez you may see another very interesting palace next to a famous romanic chapel, that is a quite popular church for weddings in Switzerland. Don't miss to see the palace of Spiez also from inside, it is beautifully furnished and from the tower you will have an excellent view over the lake and the surrounding mountains. Next to the palace wine is grown and Spiez is also a popular place to go for a vacation, with plenty of great hotels by the lake, but it is a lot more quiet than Interlaken. Visiting the palace of Spiez is easiest, when you arrive by ship, because the train-station is in a distance of 1500 meters from the palace.
Good news for all VT-ers : Photography is NO problem at all inside the palace !!
