  • Image 1


This Lake District can be experienced in the manner of the eco-museums: the objects are not to be found in a building, but in the landscape, in their historic as well as contemporary context.
The Culture Trail -Jura Water Correction- offers the visitor a hands-on experience of the monumental changes wrought by human intervention in the landscape of Lakes Biel, Neuenburg and Murten.
Guests learn about the development of swamp drainage, interesting facts about the Häftli nature preserve in the dry loop of the Aare River, about water regulation, the construction of the Aare-Hagneck-Canal and the changes in the landscape due to the Jura water correction.

Circular Bicycle Trail: Lyss, Büren, Biel, Sutz-Lattrigen - Täuffelen - Aarberg - Lyss (the trail includes 53 km on asphalt road). Bicycles are transported on the BTI-train Nidau and Hagneck.
