Advent in the Biel Seeland region

A glass of mulled wine at a stall at Biel's Christmas market, a shopping trip through Biel's old town or ice skating in the middle of Switzerland's largest bilingual city, the possibilities for experiences are many.


Famous for its charming alleys, beautiful facades and venerable corporate houses, the old town is a privileged place in the heart of the city of Biel.
