Walk along the Jakobsweg from Thun to Gwatt and on via Amsoldingen to Wattenwil.
The walk from Thun to Wattenwil leads in a wide sweep first along Lake Thun and then through an undulating area across into the Gürbetal valley. There are fantastic views of the mountains of the Bernese Oberland all along the way. At first, your gaze is drawn to the Niesen, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, with the lake glittering in the sunshine in the foreground. Later, the walk is dominated by the rocky dome of the Stockhorn. In the area between Thun and the Stockhorn range is a string of little or even tiny lakes that are popular tourist spots, especially at weekends.
The brown signs for the Jakobsweg show the way for the whole route. The first part of the walk leads along the bank of Lake Thun to Gwatt. Then you go over a hill to the Stockental valley. Finally, the route takes you past lakes and little hamlets to Wattenwil.
