Thun is a very small town in central Switzerland, on the banks of the River Aar and Lake Thun. It is possible to travel by boat from Interlaken, but due to the lack of time to enjoy the route, I chose to go by train, which left me right in the city centre.
Kleine Sheidegg is a ski resort with about 100 km of slopes, at 2061 m altitude. Here the Downhill World Championship starts every year, which descends to Wengen at a distance of 4.2 km.
It wouldn't be a real trip to Switzerland in winter if it didn't have at least a little snow experience!
Interlaken is a tourist city, with beautiful and luxurious hotels, which mainly serves as a place of accommodation for those who want to get to know the region and do winter sports activities in the mountains.
A trip around Switzerland on a scenic train is something extremely expensive but equally unforgettable!
The lion monument is an extremely realistic sculpture of a lion cut into a huge rock in 1820 by Lukas Ahorn and Bertel Thorvaldsen, in memory of the 800 Swiss guard soldiers who died in 1792 in the French Revolution.
One of the main squares in the city is Weinmarkt, with several historical houses with painted facades and a Gothic fountain in the center, Weinmarktbrunnen. But this is a replica, as the original is in the courtyard of the Ritterscher Palast, in another street.
The Chapel Bridge is the trademark of this beautiful Swiss city. All in wood, with a length of more than 200 meters, was built in 1333 but suffered a serious fire that damaged many of its paintings.
Limmatquai is a charming boulevard on the banks of the city river. In its elegant buildings are several shops and luxurious restaurants. But my "almost empty" wallet only allowed me to see them on the outside.
