The Lake Biel fleet has nine boats, including the MobiCat, the world’s largest solar catamaran. This unusual boat, operated purely on solar energy, offers a brunch cruise every Sunday in summer and can be rented for private events, whether this is a seminar or a party.
Lake Biel is ringed by romantic vineyards that offer some of Switzerland’s loveliest hikes. Or enjoy the St. Peter’s Island, where Rousseau once wrote some of his most seminal works. Put in a stop in Ligerz and visit the Vintners’ Museum or take the Vinifuni to Prêles, from where you can enjoy the pleasant views.
One of the prettiest river cruises is between Solothurn and Biel on the Aare. Here, visitors get to see Altreu with its imposing stork colony and Büren, a charming medieval village with a beautifully crafted wooden covered bridge.Then it is on to the rocks of Port, where the water level of the Jura lakes are regulated.
The Three-Lakes cruise (Lake Biel, Lake Neuchâtel, Lake Murten) takes in the vineyards of Lake Biel, the romantic St. Peter’s Island, the Zihl and Broye Canal and finally winds up in medieval Murten.
