Crashing waves, mirror-like reflections of the countryside, water that changes from deep blue to turquoise...Lake Biel never ceases to amaze.

Together with the lakes of Neuchâtel and Murten, the Lake Biel is part of the so-called Jura fringe lakes. The northern shoreland of the Lake Biel is characterised by intensively cultivated winegrowing areas, while the southern shore remains entirely natural. In summer, the lake is populated by stand-up paddlers and windsurfers, kayakers and boaters, fishermen and liners. The lake’s highlight is the mystical St. Peter’s island with its hidden bathing bays and the venerable monastic hotel. The Lake Biel Navigation Company provides a holiday atmosphere while you enjoy a glass of local wine on board and glide along the picturesque winegrowers’ villages.
