Spiez is located in a bay on Lake Thun in the Bernese Oberland, Switzerland. In Spiez, the rail lines Bern-Interlaken and Bern-Visp(-Italy) meet. Thus, despite the small number of habitants (12'500), many international trains call at the station, making the city easy accessible by public transit. A tourist attraction is the Castle of Spiez that dates back to the 10th century.
The panorama was taken around the year 2003. It shows the harbour of the bay of Spiez and the Castle.
