The Bernese Oberland is all about the outdoors. Hiking is, of course, free. And you can drink the water in the fountains along the trails. Other sports, like paragliding, will cost you generally between 100 CHF and 300 CHF. Kayak rentals run about 50 CHF. Etc.
If you would rather spend your time in town, entrance to the castle in Thun is 11 CHF.
