St. Beatus Caves
The entrance to the St. Beatus Caves, idyllically
set in a natural park ...
On the east bank of Lake Thun, in the immediate vicinity of the holiday town of Interlaken, the St. Beatus Caves reach far into the interior of the mighty Niederhorn massif. Legend has it that this monumental natural construction, fashioned over millions of years, served St. Beatus as a safe refuge in the 6th century. Whereas in the 18th century the picturesque Pilgrims' Path was the only access, the popular St. Beatus Caves are nowadays easy to reach by boat, bus or car.
