The Strandboden area is located right by Lake Biel. This is where the locals take time out from their busy lives and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.
Even the ancient inhabitants of pile-dwellings chose Erlach on Lake Biel and St. Peter's Island as their abodes. The Romans too left traces. Bishops and members of the nobility ruled from here in the Middle Ages. Today both are popular destinations for nature lovers and visitors seeking rest and relaxation.
