The aim of the foundation is to keep Thun Castle open to interested members of the public. Furthermore, to organise and carry out events, to maintain, and to develop the museum located in the castle in a manner of general interest. This so that the variety and the web of relationships of the regional and urban history as for the history of the castle are depicted and introduced.
