#1 Experience An Adventurous Ride From Schreckfeld To Bort

Think you’ve done it all? Wait until you try Mountain Cart! A mix of go-kart and sledge, it guarantees 3kms of unrivaled fun. Mountain Cart transports you from Schreckfeld to Bort, and makes the otherwise rough and bumpy track, a ride to remember. This spectacular ride amidst snow-covered peaks of the Alps, can also be enjoyed by children aged 10 years and above, with a minimum height of 125cm.

PS: Safety helmets are available free of charge.

#2 Get A Glimpse Of The Civic Life Of The City Of Thun

Instead of walking around the city of Thun, get a glimpse at the life of the locals via a life-size picture book! Confused? The Thun Panorama gives you a glimpse of the life in Thun (of the year 1814) through a 7.5 metres high and 38 metres long painting, which sits in the Schadau Park.

While its massive size is definitely an attraction, the painting also radiates a distinct charm and an unusual perspective into the living rooms, schools and streets of the city of Thun. Artist Marquard Wocher has certainly immortalised the city’s morning time with fascinating precision.
