Nature park and cross-country paradise

45 km of cross-country ski trails for traditional skiing and skating combine the main departure points: Schwarzenbühl/Selital, Ottenleuebad and the Gurnigel water divide. The network is supplemented by several somewhat more demanding secondary routes. The cross-country ski trails with reliable snowfalls and views of the Gantrisch range, Lake Thun and the Alps are suitable for dedicated sportspersons as well as amateur cross-country skiers.

Peace, views, space, sun and lengthy distances – the Gantrisch cross-country ski region and beautiful pre-Alp landscapes along with the Gantrisch nature park, on the threshold to the city of Bern, is a most popular spot for top athletes and ski hikers alike.

Centre PasquArt

The CentrePasquArt annex in Seevorstadt is one of Biel’s most spectacular 1990s buildings. The internationally renowned architects Diener and Diener extended the existing museum along plain lines and placed a distinct but respectful new building alongside this former 19th century hospital.

The CentrePasquArt is a space for innovative, creative young artists and encourages those with talent to develop new works of art for the exhibitions.
