Saint Beatus caves, one of the largest cave systems in the Alps
Release the dragon! Hunted by St Beat, a 6th century monk, so the story goes, the mythological creature took shelter at this extraordinary geological site – St Beatus caves, near Interlaken. Now, you can explore these caves, that run deep into the very heart of the mountain along over a kilometre of well-lit walkways yourself. You will discover stalactites and stalagmites that have been formed by nature over millions of years. Therefore, the rock formations themselves create a truly indescribable atmosphere deep underground.
You can undertake this excursion regardles of the weather, because either on a hot summer day you can escape the heat or alternatively on a cooler and rainy day, when clouds block the panoramic views of the mountains, this is a logical excursion inside the mountain. The caves are also located on the pilgrim route that leads all the way to Santiago de Compostella.
The best way to explore the caves, is to book a guided tour. The experienced guides reveal even more information and will therefore show you details that are not known to the general public or visitors who explore for themselves.
Only a few minutes from the foot of the caves, you can visit the restaurant which offers unrivaled views of Lake Thun and authentic cuisine in a relaxed environment. The restaurant is committed to authenticity; sourcing only the freshest ingredients from local suppliers in the region who respect the environment and ecological principles.
Why don’t you visit the Cave Museum and learn more! It is fun and informative. The museum uses the latest infotainment technologies to bring the caves’ history to life. It is also an excellent alternative for those who, whatever the reason, cannot walk the 1,000 metres of underground walkways of the St Beatus caves.
Included is some time at the restaurant for drinks or a meal.
