St. Peter's Island


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.

“I have stayed at many lovely places; but nowhere have I felt so truly happy as on St. Petersinsel in the middle of the Bielersee, and I think back to no stay with such sweet longing" - Jean-Jacques Rousseau in "Reveries of the Solitary Walker”, Fifth Walk. St. Peter's Island was a modest estate with leased vineyard parcels when Rousseau’s 18th century description brought it to European attention. The island became a stop on educational tours through Switzerland and then turned into a popular tourist destination for those seeking tranquility and natural beauty.
