Lake Biel is situated at the German and French language border, and it is the eight-largest lake of Switzerland.
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.
