French and German-speaking Switzerland meet on the shores of Lake Biel - contrasting landscapes as well, with vineyards shaping the land on the one hand and agriculture on the other. Among other things, lovely little winemaking villages await being discovered on the northern shores of Lake Biel and a charming natural shoreline to the south. Numerous places invite you to take a refreshing dip at all cardinal points of the lake.
