Schloss Thun, in Thun, Canton of Bern, Switzerland. Visit the mighty donjon built around 1200 by the Dukes of Zährigen.
Experience the pomp and glory of the medieval Great Hall.
Climb up into the towers and enjoy the impressive view of the town, lake and wonderful mountains. The present day castle with its adjoining buildings was originally a fortress. There was a stately home with a residential building and a curtain wall already in the 12th century. This is confirmed by archaeological research, which took place during the big reconstruction in 2013.
It can be presumed that the Dukes of Zähringen did not take over the compound quite peacefully. Berchtold V had the up to the present day well-preserved monumental donjon integrated in the compound. The Zähriger never intended to live here as they had a residence built in Burgdorf. Yet, it is with this imposing tower that they could leave a sign of their power over the region and the local trading paths. The donjon is unsuitable as a permanent residence as it is actually a single 14-metre high room, which is now called the Grand Hall. In its time an imposing place of representation, today one of the best-preserved representation halls of the Middle Ages.
Since the 12th century, Thun Castle with its adjoining buildings was the domicile of Thun nobility and was always reconstructed to suit their use. No building measures were taken during the time of the Dukes of Kyburg, yet there were many changes under the long reign of Berne up to 2006; these changes also including the offices of the regional court. Since the 17th century, there had also been a prison under the roof of the donjon. #thun#thuncastle#thunswitzerland#switzerland#bernese#bernesealps#cantonofbern#bernswitzerland#schloss#schlossthun#medieval#history#zahringen#middleages#nobility#fortress#castle#lakethun#europe#vacation#travel#sightseeing#tourist#tourism#crossbow

вы когда-нибудь задумывались о том, что именно зло является двигателем любого сюжета
жизнь полная счастья и спокойствия скучна, как и все книги, фильмы, и игры, без харизматичного злодея приятной внешности, лексикон которого полон колких фраз, врезающихся в память навека
история словно не имеет виновника происходящего, понимаете…?
нет отправного действия, а наш главный герой не может стать героем, потому что ему некого спасать, некому помогать и весь смысл теряется, все происходящее становится полной бессмыслицей
