Hotel Aare Thun

Hotel Aare, Thun
Why this hotel? Fantastic location on the Aare island

Open all year

Having undergone extensive refurbishment, the Hotel Aare is the perfect place for a stay in Thun. With a magical position on the island close to the picturesque Old Town, you have everything close at hand and may even hear the gentle lapping of the river. A friendly hotel with a long tradition and history, the elegant renovations have improved the guest experience even further. Rooms are styled with a ship's berth theme and offer all modern comforts including a coffee machine. 

The hotel’s Restaurant Freienhof has a long tradition going back to the 12th century. Today it has an enviable reputation for its international and fine local cuisine, including a daily recommendation from the chef. Matching the cuisine are wines from Switzerland, Italy, France and Spain. The restaurant is also open for drinks and small plates or coffee and cake during the day. Personal attention and a typical Swiss welcome wait for you throughout the hotel.

Dining à la carte.
