Day 4 – Murten
After visiting the Museum of Murten, we understand the significance of the ramparts during the Battle of Murten in 1476. Walking through these famous ramparts, we take a look at the historic past of the city, towards the blue of Lake Murten but also on its charming streets, arcades and cafes. By the way: a fresh Mutner Nidelkuchen from Aebersold bakery is a must! For an aperitif it is advisable to taste a Chasselas from the nearby Mont-Vully, whether in a flea market atmosphere at the Chesery restaurant, in a beach atmosphere at the Beach House or even on the magnificent terrace of the Hotel Schiff am See.
Day 5 – Murten
A real holiday atmosphere emerges from the cruise on Lake Murten. This circuit of 75 minutes departing from Murten with meals on board is a treat for body and soul. You can also use this means of transport to reach the other bank and visit the wine-growing villages of Vully, take a stroll on the Vineyard path, discover the caves of the First World War or even climb Mont Vully and enjoy the view. (653 m). The panorama is spectacular! Anyone who wants to literally change the climate can visit the Papiliorama in Kerzers. An adventure in its own!

The medieval city has become trendy. In fact, the ArtiChoke urban art itinerary revolves around 15 works by artists from very different worlds, resolutely turned towards modern and contemporary art.
