A fan of scenic delights opens up between Langnau and Thun. This stage may be considered the most powerful, longest and perhaps most spectacular. On a first section you follow the lush Emmental, which can inspire here with all its splendor. The further you advance towards the mountains, the more rustic it becomes, until in Eriz the mood finally tips completely into the pre-Alpine, where jingling goats and cows graze the steep slopes below the rock bands. Through a long, hardly populated forest passage we break through to Lake Thun, which spreads out in breathtaking splendor far below us. The view glides to the opposite Niesen, the Kilimanjaro of the Oberland with its pyramid-shaped stature. One almost forgets to steer because of all this view that has built up here. Gradually, the tour descends to the lake 700 meters below and leads us into Thun, the city of the Alps, situated on the foaming mint-green Aare.
Relax with a break in the beautiful Schadaupark in Thun.
