Thun castle looks as in a fairytale. Inside you can visit a museum of medeavel wapons. A while ago the castel was used as a jail.
The castle is very nice, with several rooms to visit, and some exibits on them. It's a shame that there are just a few english explanations.
Earlier this month, my family visited Lake Thun and many of the surrounding attractions. This castle anchors the town visually and is just as impressive on the exterior as it is inside.
