The small medieval town of Murten, with its lake shore directly before the town walls, offers an especially scenic route around the Murtensee lake. The appealing lakeside promenade, vineyards and the historic old town is a must for romanticists!

The circular route begins in Murten itself. The fairy-tale town centre with its historic school, the impressive Berntor gate and massive town walls temp you to linger in amazement. The circular route continues along the lakeside promenade, from where you can thoroughly enjoy the sight of the glistening waters and surrounding vineyards.
On an easy path, you step into a peaceful, intact region, which repeatedly captivates you with its natural beauty. After passing through a stretch of woodland, you reach the other side of the lake, where the route leads through the middle of extensive vineyards and constantly reveals picturesque stretches of land in the region.
Back in Murten you can round off the excursion in a quiet locale or with a tour through the romantic old lanes.

Tip: from Praz, Môtier or Vallamand, it is possible to go back to Murten by boat. On board you can take in enchanting views of the charming small town and the stunningly beautiful scenery.
