Medieval City Walls

Reviewed By ptyduke - Florida

It was interesting to walk the walls of this medieval town. Nice photo opportunities along the way. It was not busy the day I visited so I had the place almost to myself.

Papiliorama

Reviewed By markypao - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

A great place to spend a rainy day. Three main exhibits:
- butterfly pavillion
- nocturnal animals exhibit
- jungle trek
Butterflies were great. Especially liked the gigantic Atlas Moth.
Highlight was the nocturnal animals exhibit with bats flying freely throughout brushing up against your cheeks!! My wife and kids freaked out. I loved it!!!
Just a great cozy and well curated zoo. Weather kept us from seeing the outdoor exhibits but nevertheless was all worth it!!!

Hervorragende Biere aus dem Weingebiet am Murtensee. In Sugiez, direkt neben dem Bahnhof befindet sich die kleine und feine Brasserie Haldemann AG. In dieser Brauerei werden alle Biere von Freddy Haldemann mit viel Hingabe und Können von Hand gemacht. Man kann die Brauerei auch besuchen, es gibt Brauseminare für Gruppen und jeweils ist am Freitag Abend wie auch Samstag Nachmittag bis 21.00 Uhr "Open House". In der Regel sind 6 verschiedene Biere am Zapfhahnen welche eben sehr bekömmlich sind. Selbstverständlich kann man dort vor Ort auch die Bier, welche in Flaschen abgefüllt werden, kaufen.

Roman Amphitheatre

Reviewed By Andrew W - Crassier, Switzerland

My daughter bought us two tickets to see the opéra Madame Butterfly at Avenche - an outdoor amphetheatre over 2000 years old. The ambiance was fantastic as was the performance. Take a pillow with you as the stone seats can be quite hard. One of the best expériences of my life.

Musee des Chemins de fer du Kaeserberg

It is 11 o'clock. The station master announces the train pulling into the station, This is where a wonderful tale becomes reality thanks so the perseverance of its conceptor, Marc Antiglio. An imaginary network of miniature Railways will take you a journey through Switzerland as is it were real. Built on 3 levels, on a scale of 1:87, 2045 metres of track are layed.

Reviewed By N K - Rishon Lezion, Israel

Kaeserberg Museum of Trains is something you probably won't see elsewhere. It's a mini train model on a grand scale with towns, Mountains, tunnels, cars, and more. The trains are run by a special system resembling a real train network operation, there is "day" and "night" and various trains are moving across different "toy" scenery. Although the tour is only in German and French, there is more to see there than hear so it's still interesting even if you don't understand the guide.

Stadtrundgaenge Murten

Reviewed By bandmanjp - Winter Haven, Florida

We took the train from Bern and spent several hours in this well-preserved medieval town. The ramparts are easily accessible and we enjoyed submerging ourselves in the long history of the place. The little town is filled with specialty shops and there are dozens little sidewalk cafes and restaurants. Everything was clean and visitor friendly. It was a nice place to visit.

Reviewed By Pierre H - Neuchatel, Switzerland

Pour un anniversaire, nous voulions faire une surprise à la grand-mère.
En arrivant devant le bâtiment, nous avons été accueillis par un chant dont les paroles souhaitaient la bienvenue et un bon anniversaire.
Nous étions presque 20 personnes, de 5 à 70 ans. Chacun a eu beaucoup de plaisir et participer activement.
Bonne ambiance, et bonne attitude de compétition de la part de chacun, sans aucune excitation.

Murten Tourismus

Reviewed By moot - Tenbury Wells, United Kingdom

I'd read about this area of Switzerland changing from Swiss German to Swiss Romande in the wink of an eye and it's true! We'd been cycling around Lac Morat and hearing other walkers speaking French and saying 'bonjour' then suddenly we crossed the canal and cycled through the forest towards Murten (the lake is called Murtensee in German!) and it all became German- all the signs too were in German. I even asked a woman about the city walls in French and she looked bemused and asked if I spoke English! It is a beautiful town with a stunning lakefront. Lots of restaurants and bars in the old town above the lake too. Then carry on towards Avenches and you're back in Suisse Romande!

This small museum provides an overview of Murten and its history. It has a good range of artefacts and other curios. Some of the items, weaponry and armour, are similar to those found in other museums.
