Hiking on the trail of dinosaurs, lake-dwellers, knights and philosophers
A visit to the Jura & Three-Lakes region is a must for all wine lovers. History enthusiasts will also find that it is an attractive travel destination.
Land of hiking, land of watchmaking or land of winemakers, these are only a few of the names that describe the Jura and Three-Lakes holiday destination. Along Lake Biel more than 80 winemakers offer their produce, and lake-dwellings give an insight into the Neolithic Age. The Regional Park Chasseral offers various leisure activities. Hiking trails and cross-country skiing trails are just waiting to be discovered. Have you ever followed the trails of dinosaurs? This is possible in La Heutte where you can explore several findings leading back to Brachiosauruses and carnivores.
Biel/Bienne is the perfect place for fans of clocks and watches
Between 1844 and 1859 more than 1700 watchmakers swarmed into the city of Biel/Bienne. Today several of the well-known brands call the city at Lake Biel their home. But Biel/Bienne is not just worth a visit if you are a fan of clocks and watches. The Old Town is an absolute gem for fans of history. There is for example the gothic City Church of Biel, which dates back to the 15th century, the Roman spring as well as numerous medieval arcs, towers and fountains. If you want to escape everyday life, you should stop at St. Peter’s Island. The guesthouse on the island enthrals with its monastic simplicity, exquisite regional dishes and wonderful views of Lake Biel.
