Description

Sugiez - Môtier

The fall foliage has already begun to slowly change color, the cheerful tones of the grape harvesters ring out everywhere from under the vines, the view is clear and you can see all the way to the Alps. Experience this unique circular hike and round it off preferably with a wonderful fish delicacy in one of the numerous restaurants at the lake.

The range of hills to the north of Lake Murten is not just land that has been settled since time immemorial - grapes that give superb wines also ripen on its slopes. A varied hike leads straight across the vineyards on the hillsides. If you want to obtain information about this wine region, you can read the information panels by the wayside. If you love adventure, you can ascend to the sandstone grottos at Mont Vully or to the top of the hill. If you just want to enjoy yourself, you can revel in the view of the lake, hills and towns - and happily anticipate the forthcoming wine-tasting in Môtier!
