WHERE IS THUN?

Thun is a short distance south east of Bern.

Most tour members fly into Zurich. There are multiple train connections daily right from the Zurich Airport that transport you to Thun in approx 1hr 45 minutes. It’s a relaxing ride. I provide detailed information to Tour members on how to get to the train station, buy your ticket, catch the train and more.

Another option, depending on where you are flying from, is the Bern Airport. The Bern airport (symbol “BRN”) is readily accessible from several major European cities including Amsterdam, Brussels, Florence, London, Munich, Paris and Vienna. From the Bern airport the taxi ride takes about 20-30 minutes.

Thun is easily reached via autobahn. There are also bus and rail connections from Zurich and Bern to Thun.  Thun sits on the west end of the Thuner See (“see” is another word for lake). Thun has a beautiful old city center with a river running through it. To the east is the Brienzer See. In between the two sees sits the tourist Mecca of Interlaken. Nearby are the famous Yosemite like waterfalls of Lauterbrunnen and the village of Grindelwald at the foot of the Eiger (the mountain on which Clint Eastwood dallied in the “Eiger Sanction”).
