Schloss Oberhofen was built in the 13th century on the shores of Lake Thun. Its dimensions back then were 11 by 12.5 meters and its walls were 2 meters thick. In 1849-52 the Pourtàles family renovated and expanded the castle which gave it its current appearance. The oriental smoking room was designed by Theodor Zeerleder for Count Albert de Pourtalès and completed in 1855.
