1 Best Sight in Spiez, Berner Oberland

Schloss Spiez

The town's enormous waterfront castle, Schloss Spiez, was home to the family Strättligen and, in the 13th century, its great troubadour, Heinrich. The structure spans four architectural epochs, starting with the 11th-century tower. Its halls contain beautiful period furnishings, some dating back to Gothic times. The early Norman church on the grounds is more than 1,000 years old. You can visit the castle museum, which explores the castle's history; climb up the castle tower for a panoramic view; see the historic castle church; and taste wine at the Winery Spiez in the castle cellar. There's also a café on-site. Though the castle itself is only open seasonally, you can stroll through the gardens year-round.
