  • The Étang de la Gruère is a very pretty Ausflusziel: A small, quiet lake surrounded by woods. Outside the holiday season you can on weekdays here enjoy the peace and quiet, take a lovely stroll around the lake or just bäumeln the soul. On the weekends and in the holidays it is safe here when the weather but often crowded and noisy.

  • There is a small car park 5 minutes walk from the beautiful pond that was half frozen during our walk with our young children. There is a road style small wooden bridge that makes all this pretty landscape around. I can't say how long it takes to go around because there was a lot of snow and ice on the ground during our visit but it is feasible even with children. A must see. Nice framework between water and beautiful trees.

  • This small lake and the surrounding forest will make you feel like you are in Scandinavia. There is a path around the lake which take about 45 mins to walk. Its a easy walk and has basically no up and downs. As it is a natural preserve area you can not do any fire and you should stay on the paths. In winter the lake can freeze all over which makes a impressive view.
  • Super nice place for a walk around the Natural Reserve, less than an hour to go around from the Parking. Totally worthy in a sunny day !
  • quaint bog Lake, relaxation from the daily hustle and bustle. Wonderful hiking around the Lake. The scenic mood feels like in northern climes. The short hike is to create in 45 minutes. I recommend to take more time but, to observe nature and to perceive.

  • I love this place. Go in winter, in summer, the day or even at night... It looks nice and you can take a walk to the Tower of the pond always surrounded by nature. This is probably the only location near Bienne where we can really appreciated the stars away from the cities and light pollution.
