Holidays in Spiez - Switzerland Idyllic lakeside resort with a holiday atmosphere

Occupying an enviable spot on glorious Lake Thun, Spiez is an inviting resort famed for its mild climate and beautiful bay. It has a lovely backdrop of hillside vineyards (which produce crisp white wines) and the Niederhorn range of peaks stretching to the Bernese Alps. This is the ideal place to relax for a few days by the water's edge, enjoy the resort's facilities and explore the mountains.

Spiez is also a great resort to combine with Montreux on the GoldenPass Line or with Brig on the Lötschberg Regio Express - both these classic scenic rail routes call here as they make their way through the spectacular countryside. The must-see in Spiez itself is the medieval castle and its early Romanesque church. Take time to enjoy a stroll along the promenade and watch the watersports on the lake, or try a longer walk along the peaceful shore to Faulensee. Cruises on Lake Thun depart regularly from Spiez and make for a wonderfully relaxing few hours on the turquoise waters.  

Please call us on 0800 619 1200 to tailor make your Spiez holiday.

Your time in Spiez - things to see and do

Staying in Spiez, you are well situated for exploring the region. The local Niesen mountain (the 'Swiss Pyramid') is well worth visiting for the funicular trip and fantastic views. Take the Beatenburg funicular and the Niederhorn gondola to experience a panorama sweeping from the Jura to the Bernese Alps, or try the cable car up to Stockhorn for more fabulous views. You could take a leisurely lake cruise along Lake Thun to Interlaken then hop over to Lake Brienz to visit its pretty villages such as Bönigen and Iseltwald.

From Interlaken, ever popular Harder Kulm and the Schynige Platte with its Alpine Garden are also easily accessible. You can even head up to the high Alps to experience the Jungfraujoch at 3,454m or the magnificent Schilthorn with its revolving restaurant and 360º views.
