The Awakening Love Festival takes place in the park of Hünegg Castle. From the main stage directly next to the castle you can enjoy a magnificent view of Lake Thun, the foothills and high Alps, framed by bushes and high-stemmed trees, which grow luxuriantly in the mild, temperature-equalizing sea climate. Among these trees in the castle park are numerous foreign specimens such as sequoia trees, Lebanon cedars and multi-stem cypresses, which were planted around 1860.
The park offers enough space for meditation and relaxation. And those who wish can go for a swim directly in front of the castle on the Hünegg-Wiese in Lake Thun.
Parking is limited and is subject to a charge! Parking is available directly behind the park (access via Alte Thunstrasse), on the state road (behind the Hilterfingen Bistro) or on the Hünegg-Wiese. Furthermore you can park at the Gemeindehaus/Migros in Hilterfingen. We have a limited number of discounted parking tickets available for the whole day, which can be purchased with the ticket and picked up at the cash desk (only as long as stocks last).
There are no parking facilities in the residential area around Hünegg Castle!
There are regular buses from Thun train station till midnight (lines 21 and 25). We ask all those who live/stay in the region to come by bus due to limited parking. Bus stop: Eichbühl or Hilterfingen Post and then a short walk to Schloss Hünegg.
