Ask me about my favorite places in the world and Switzerland will be on the list. Ask me about my favorite places in Switzerland and you’ll surely hear me mention Thun—a riverside town overlooking a lake and the Alps.
It reminds me of its more popular cousin, Lucerne, with its covered wooden bridges draped in flowers, its deep blue lake, and its charming Swiss architecture. But—and for us this is an excellent but—it’s far less touristy. Far less known. It’s smaller and quainter and less likely to attract crowds.
Which is why when our friends came to visit over the holidays, it was one of our first stops.
And it was just as charming as I remembered.
