I signed up for a good long walk from Biel to Twann, starting at 11h. I am not interested in swimming, or wine tasting, or starting at 10h for a short walk. Have a good day.

The trail begins in picturesque Twann. After admiring the flower-bedecked windows, visitors will find the first post directly after the bridge over the Twannbach Gorge. The well-signposted educational trail documents the history of vineyards and viticulture in the area. On arrival in Ligerz, visitors should head to the Viticulture Museum if they want more information about winegrowing traditions.
