This little town in the Bernese Jura surprises guests with its architectural diversity
Culture, nature, and sport: Tramelan, the clock village close to Biel/Bienne, draws visitors with all the attractions that make a trip out a thorough success.
Skiing on the Montagne du Droit or cross-country skiing on the Jura plateaus; all winter sportspeople will enjoy their visit to Tramelan. After a tiring day on the piste, the best place to relax is at the Centre Interrégional de Perfectionnement. There is more excitement: hobby archers hit the bullseye shooting crossbows, while hikers observe the rare species of animals and plants on the moorland or enjoy the peace and quiet of the meadows and fir forests of the Franches-Montagnes.
Time for art
Culture seekers will quickly find what they are looking for in Tramelan. The colourful world of comics opens its doors at the Festival Tramlabulle. At the Cinématographe, guests admire the preserved art nouveau décor on the facade. Anyone who further explores Tramelan will be surprised by its multi-faceted architecture: cubic houses, the Saint-Michel Church influenced by Gothic Revival and Domestic Revival, and old clock factories characterise the landscape of the town.
From saddle to saddle
Horse fans hold the reins in Tramelan. The region not only possesses a home breed in the form of the Freiberger, but also inns for overnight stays, like the Scheidegg-Ranch, and traditional coach rides. The possibilities for bikes are just as great as for horses: cyclists conquer the varied routes and pedal past the wind farms of Mont Crosin and the rich natural settings around Tramelan.
