Hotel Freienhof
Swimming Pool

The Freienhof has a lovely position in Thun
Why this hotel? Alpine views and a central, riverside location

Open all year

The Freienhof is a charming and friendly hotel with a long tradition and history, peacefully situated on a quiet peninsula where you can even hear the gentle lapping of the Aare river. The hotel is only a few steps from the picturesque old town and the beautiful Lake of Thun.

The hotel’s restaurant has an enviable reputation for its international and fine local cuisine with fish as a speciality. There is a bar and you can enjoy superb alpine views from the terrace next to the river which is open during the summer months.

Personal attention and a typical Swiss welcome are of paramount importance to the hotel and Thun is an excellent base from which to explore this area.

Discover the lakes and mountains excursions available in the wider Bernese Oberland region here.
