"Just fantastic. This is a beautiful lake with lots of tourist possibilities. Covered bridges, great cycling and a very nice ambiance."
"The region is like a fairy tale. Thun is a cosy, small, relaxed city with small exclusive shops in the old town. You have everything at one place: The lake, the mountains, thee small relaxed city, restaurants. Interlaken on the other side of the lake is very touristic but also beautiful, it is the starting point of many interesting places."
