Schlossberg Thun, Switzerland: Meet and Greet since 1190
Schlossberg together with Thun Castle, with its distinctive four towers, majestically dominates the town, the region as well as the medieval site. 90 minutes away from Zurich, Basel and Lausanne, Schlossberg is easily reachable by train or car.
In 2010 Hans-Ulrich Müller, entrepreneur, purchased the buildings surrounding the Thun Castle in construction rights and renovated them in 2013 and 2014.
Nowadays guests can eat traditional and delicious food from the Alpine region in the restaurant or terrace of the New Castle. A visit in the Lounge is the ideal place to round off an evening in a leisurely manner. Just sipping a drink or a coffee in the courtyard in front of the imposing Old Castle delivers a special experience. A unique ambience to feel well and relaxed can be relished in the boutique hotel with 17 rooms and Spa. In addition, our rooms on the first floor of the New Castle offer the perfect setting for your events, whether weddings, cocktail receptions, formal dinners, company events, seminars and or conferences.
A visit to the museum and the Old Castle is recommended. The building, dating from around 1200, is a uniquely preserved testimony to the architecture of the dukes of Zähringen. The Castle contains the Rittersaal which is the largest great hall from the High Middle Ages existent in Switzerland. While touring the five floors, vistors encounter the medieval history of the town and castle. From its towers, this architectural jewel offers an unparalleled 360-degree view of the Swiss Alps, town and lake. No wonder that more than 40’000 persons visit Schlossberg and its castle every year.
