The guided tour of the old town begins at the Bäsetöri, an airy passageway that leads into the medieval core. During the tour, you will learn where the name "Biel/Bienne" comes from, what the Roman spring is all about and what an eventful history Biel/Bienne experienced as property of the Prince-Bishop of Basel. The Ring, formerly the market and court square, is the oldest square in the city, characterised by venerable guild houses, the Vennerbrunnen fountain, the town church and secluded arcades. Do you know what an Ehgraben is, why the Rotschettenturm has a wooden superstructure and what Goethe, Rousseau and Pestalozzi were doing in Biel/Bienne?
