Magglingen - Twannbach Ravine - Twann

It's a "classic": the popular hiking tour near Lake Biel - from Magglingen across Mt. Twannberg down to Twann.

The hiking tour from Magglingen across Mt. Twannberg down to Twann is a "classic-" - the most popular tour of Lake Biel. The beautiful views of Twannberg mountain contrast strikingly with the deep Twannbach ravine. The views of the lake and Petersinsel island round off the tour, cementing its effect as a unique hiking experience. A subsequent stroll through the center of Twann, which is well worth seeing, is followed by a bonus - a comfortable cruise on a ship back to Biel.
