Absolute Ruhe und Erholung und trotzdem nah zu den Tourismusattraktionen

  • 5 of 5

Das kleine Studio ist der ideale Rückzugsort für eine romantische, kleine Auszeit zu Zweit. Die Panorama Sauna zur privaten Benutzung ist der pure Genuss und kaum zu toppen. Die grosszügige Raindance Dusche, und der Chromstahlpool sind weitere Highlights in dieser Unterkunft..

The pearl on the Lake Thun..

.. Ideal starting point to discover the Bernese Oberland and even the rest of Switzerland

Oberhofen and his castle, the old manor of past centuries from the winery and fishing village has become the preferred residential and tourist town with a high quality of life.

The village offers a beautiful location on the right bank of Lake Thun with a wide stylistic and typological density of valuable buildings from various periods on the waterfront and in the village center.

The castle park is one, thanks to the mild climate, the most beautiful gardens in the Alpine region and offers views of the imposing backdrop of the high mountains above the lake.

Oberhofen is very centrally located and ideally located to the Bernese Oberland and even to explore the whole of Switzerland.
