Ligerz: Lake Biel - St. Peter's Island

The Ligerz vintner village lies on the left-hand shores of Lake Biel, on the German/ French language border between Twann and La Neuveville. Hallmark of this attractive winemaking region is the Ligerz church, which stands in a privileged spot amidst the vineyards overlooking the village.

Earlier this often visited and most important church in the region was a destination for pilgrims, whereas today it’s a favourite for weddings due to its romantic location. The church has sufficient room for 230 people and is home to an organ, piano and modern sound system.

Not only the church, instead also the delightful views seen from the terrace of the Ligerz church deserve a special mention. Visitors here find themselves surrounded by picturesque vineyards and in-depth views over Lake Biel and the St. Peter Island, as well as the snow-capped summits of the Alps on the horizon.

The church can be reached on foot from the lake, on a path leading from the shores and on through the terraced vineyards. Alternatively, the delightful vinifuni funicular from the Ligerz village takes you to the very same spot – and the Pilgerweg stop is the place to get off.
