Subject: Sabrina: Day trips
Hi Sabrina,

I think what you have said explains a lot of what you plan to do and it helps us help you.

Here are several day trips that you can make easily by yourself out of Thun:

Unfortunately, due to the time it takes to get somewhere, and spend some time enjoying the surroundings, these are a one day trip each, even though you will be heading in the same direction many times:

these are for mountain lovers: Muerren Wengen Gimmelwald First Mountain near Grindlewald Schilthorn

Others: boat trips on the Thunersee boat trips on the Brienzersee Berne Simmental Houses--this may be difficult without a car Murten-Morat Avenches Brienz

All of the above are included with a regular Swiss Pass exept for the Schilthorn which costs some more money but it is worth it.

Another trip that costs some more money is the Oechinsee near Kandersteg

If you cannot find out about these places, email me and I will help you. However, all should be mentioned in a good guide book.

There are other neat places to see and still stay in Switzerland. I will look at my map and see what I can find that are places to which we have been.
