The Thunerseespiele are open-air musical productions during summer located at Thun, the main city of the famous Bernese Oberland, in Switzerland. Every year internationally-famous productions are staged.

The location is at the shoreline of Lake Thun (Thunersee). The stage is temporarily built every year over the water, especially for this production. The stage orientation allows the audience to see one of the most famous mountain panoramas with the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountain peaks rising over Switzerland in the background. Several eating areas provide an amenable atmosphere to spending summer nights in this area.
