Oberhofen Things to Do

    Oberhofen has a great castle to explore. Built in medieval times, it has been lived in until recently so is more like a stately home than a castle on the inside. (Thun castle, built in a similar style is still very much a medieval castle.) The Turkish Smoking room at the top is amazing – well worth the climb. When we were there it also had an interesting display of local pottery.

    There is an attractive lakeside garden next to the castle, but not much else of interest in Oberhofen.

    There is no railway station in Oberhofen – get the train to Thun or Spiez and then cross lake Thun by ferry. (It’s quicker to go via Thun as the ferry quay is next to the station.)
    Entry to the castle is free with the Swiss Museum Pass.

    We let our trusty steamer leave us here at Oberhofen so we could explore the castle/museum. Since it was only mid-day, we had plenty of chances to catch another boat to get back home.

    It's in German, but easy to figure out.
