Discover the lovely peninsula of St. Peter's Island in Lake Biel. Visit a late medieval monastery or the remains of prehistoric settlements and Roman buildings.

Having lived on the island for a few weeks, Jean-Jacques Rousseau yearned to stay there for the rest of his life. Following one of our guides, you will set off to discover its long and wonderful history passing through the Celts, the Romans, the Merovingian’s, the monks of Cluny and the Reformation to the present day. The archaeological remains are also worth a visit.
