FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • On the shores of Lake Thun, the caves are a cool look into geology and history. More than half a mile of the caves are lighted and open for touring. In addition to the impressive natural formations, visitors can also see the cell of revered Saint Beatus, and the cave museum.
  • One-hour tours leave about every 30 minutes. Photography inside the caves isn't permitted. It's a ten-minute walk to the entrance from the parking area, about 20 minutes from the nearest boat station on the lake.
  • The entrance to the caves is in a park complete with a waterfall, playground, and a dragon slide for the youngest visitors. Take time to visit the fable house to learn about local legends and dragons.
