Excellent stop in Murten. German feel. Great little historical town for a walk. Free access to town medieval walls which is a very very nice touch. Will return.

It is really worth to see this small swiss town with rich history, renovated old buildings, church and walk around Murten’s ramparts and discover the beach of the Murten lake.

One of the few remaining medieval cities enclosed by a wall you can walk. A very good destination for a day trip since it's a small area and easy to tour. Easily accessed by train from anywhere in Switzerland. We toured the city, enjoyed a delicious local perch luncheon and then boarded a ship for the Three Lake tour. We purchased a roundtrip ticket Bern -> Murten (train) Murten -> Biel (ship) Biel -> Bern all at the same time at the train depot. Times are open so we could select what worked into our schedule (although only one boat sailing that worked). Note the ship's last sailing was Sept 30th, so you won't do the 3 lakes again until spring. However, there are shorter versions still available through October I believe. Check their website for the most up-to-date time schedule.…

Such a nice, well-preserved medieval town. The sunset is spectacular over Lake Murten. In summer it offers a lot of water sports opportunities: sailing, windsurfing, water-skiing, wakeboarding, surf-biking, rowing, pedalo boating, canoeing, lake kayaking and angling.

I came here via ferry all the way from Neuchatel. A delightful morning trip. Murten sits in a beautiful spot where you can swim, engage in other lake activities, and watch a magical sunset. In fact, that's what lots of holiday types come here and return annually. Murten is also a medieval town with lots of alleyways and still surviving ramparts to explore. It's pretty quiet here, but summer weekends bring lots of special events. So check what's happening begfore you arrive. Walking the shoreline can be a fun day activity.…
