A day trip from Interlakan to Lake Thun to Burn.

Jump to last reply

Lake cruise to Thun from Interlakan on April 20th (Saturday) or 21st (Sunday).
Interlaken West ThS Neuhaus (Unterseen) dp 14:10 pm to Thun ThS M ar 16:20
Take train to Bern from Thun.
Visit Bern - Would like to do only the Old town,Cathedral,Clock tower and Federal building.
Take train back to Interlakan.

Notes:

1) We prefer to see Schloss Oberhofen but it's won't be open until May 15th and Schloss Spiez castle is the only option that will be open on our day of our travel i.e. Apirl 21st, 2013.

Q1) Does the boat stops at Spiez Schiffstation (15.32) to visit Schloss Spiez castle and we can hop-on the next boat at 16.32 to reach Thun ThS M at 17:20.
Q2) How much time do we need to visit Spiez castle?
Q3) From the spring 2013 timetable what does 'C' infers. According to the legend given it means 'Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays'. Is route given under C exclude or include these days. Sorry, but it is not very clear.

Q4) Options at Thun: Based on a research we have an option to take Funicular to Beatenberg and then the cable car to Niederhorn. If we happen to go here, then we will start our trip early and not at 14:10. Is it worthwhile to go here? Does many people usually visit Niederhorn?
Q5) Beatenbuch caves is not of our interest. Besides this, is there something else people usually prefer to visit at Thun.
Q6) Any other valuable advise is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
