Lovely hotel, ideally located to trams and train station. Shops etc in easy reach. Great standard of hotel and the travel pass which was included with our rate also made things just that little bit cheaper in an expensive city.

We then took our tram to the suburbs and back to our tram stop near the ship. It gave us a good idea of what the city is like. Tomorrow will will go to Lucerne where we will stay in a hotel and take try to Alps. Tonight is our farewell dinner. Two weeks went very ...
... trip. We walked down to the train station and boarded a boat that circled Lake Thun. Our rail pass gave us a discounted fare for this trip. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day to be on the water. We exited the boat so we could explore the town of Thun. Luckily there was a huge outdoor market in Thun and we were able to wander through the stalls of various goods – beautiful fruits, cheeses, clothes, jewelry -- everything an outdoor market can offer.
