Schloss Spiez

Spiez castle was the residence of the Minnesinger of Stretlingen and of the illustrious Bernese von Bubenberg and von Erlach families. Originally constructed as a medieval fortress, it had served as a residential castle for the 17th / 18th century nobility. The living rooms and halls, retained in their Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque style - thus showing all stages of the castle transformation throughout history - are a testimony of the accomodation and life style enjoyed by the members of all three generations of castle owners. The castle chapel, erected in early Romanesque style, as well as the raised chancel frescoes, the triple apse and the unique, unsupported crypt, were all built in Lombardian style. Temporary exhibitions, castle concerts, park and coffee shop. The new modern permanent Exhibition offers insights into the 1300-year history of the Castle complex.
