Evening landscape in the vineyards: Lake Biel near Ligerz

Sunshine city on the lakefront

The 15 kilometers long and 74 meters deep lake is one of the three large Jura lakes in Switzerland. The name Jura derives from the Celtic language and means forest which still dominates the landscape of this less fertile and sparsely populated region. On the sunny slopes of the lake shore between Biel and Le Landeron grows a fruity white wine, which is served in the taprooms with Treberwurst, a local specialty. Since the Franco-German language border runs through the lakes, most places have bilingual names.
