The Swiss rail system is superb! Trains are efficient, clean, and always seem to be on time. We had a rail pass for 3 countries, could hop on and off as we pleased. The pass also included the steamers, and we had 25% discount on the cog rails as well.

Not to miss is a cruise on the lake. It is definitely the best way to get around and see the cosy villages, castles and mountains. But of course you can go by ferry from Interlaken, Spiez or somewhere else by the lake to get to Thun for your day trip.

A colourful "bike worm" - what a really fun way of seeing Thun in a group....nobody gets left dawdling behind.The Bike Worm can be charted for a group activity - and you stay dry!
The "Thun Centipede" is the brainchild of artist Albert Levice. Ten two-wheeled trailers, each carrying one person, are hooked up behind a longwheelbase recumbent tricycle so that they follow the leader perfectly - almost as if on rails defined by the path of the leading trike.
It leaves from Obere Bälliz, May to October. Weekdays; from 2 PM, Saturday from 11 AM and Sunday from 1 PM and cost SFr 5 for 20 mins. Reservations reccommended in the high season
sorry the pic is a bit blurred, they were pedalling fast!

Thun can be reached by Train or Lake steamer - but the Lake Steamer is great in good weather - affording lovely views of the Bernese Alps. One of the boats is decked up as a dragon - great fun for the kids but if you want a peaceful boat ride as you soak up the sun then avoid this one.

I have never seen something like this before: 20 minutes sightseeing of Thun on a colourful bike train for 10 people. it really looked like great fun! Prices: 5 Sfr for adults, and 3 Sfr for children.
The Bike Worm leaves from Obere Bälliz, May to October. Weekdays; from 2 PM, saturday from 11 AM and sunday from 1 PM. It's worth to make an advance reservation, I think. If you're going with a group of friends, you can charter a bike worm and have all the freedom and fun you want.

By train arriving at either Interlaken Ost or Interlaken West. The tourist information center is located at the ground level of the MetroPole Hotel, in between the two stations. If you intend to head up to Bernese Oberland, alight at Interlaken Ost and hop onto a connecting train to Grindelwald or somewhere up there.
The Bernese Oberland regions are connected to one another by cable car systems, funicular and mountain rail tracks. To figure out how to go from one region to another, pick a copy of the ski trails map and it will tell you all.

To get to Schilthorn the best and only way is by train, cog railway and cable car. With the Swiss pass the trip is only 40SFr. The view is Spectacular, and some say better than Jungraujoch. With your Swiss pass you can get to the town of Murren which is also breath-taking. THe extra 40SFr is worth it though. You feel like you are at the top of the world and nothing can stop you.

I noticed Thun had an excellent mobility scheme. Cars by the station were available for hire and also near to the old town bicycles could also be rented by the hour or day.
