The manufacturing tour enables you to set off on a personal discovery of the spirit and crafts of the city of Biel/Bienne in your own time.
You use the handbook to help you explore the city of Biel/Bienne, its handicraft shops, studios, galleries, bars, cafes, restaurants and other creative places. You will be amazed at how many innovative people live in Biel/Bienne, who have literally taken their destiny into their own hands. Diversity is one of the great strengths of this watch metropolis, be it cultural, linguistic or economic: French-speaking and German-speaking Swiss, tradition and innovation, culture and alternative projects.
Be fascinated by Biel/Bienne's savoir-vivre, and get to know people and places that you might not have been aware of up to now. One of the highlights of this tour is Biel/Bienne's old town, which has no large chain stores and thrives on small shops run by passionate artisans.
