Activities on the water

Boat rental

You can easily rent motorboats (you do not need a license) and pedalos. Spend some time on the Lake. It is extremely relaxing and a great way to see the city from a different perspective.

Sailing-School Lake Murten

SUP (paddle boarding)

Rent a board at the hotel and experience the perfect balance while navigating along the shores of Lake Murten.

Boarding, Surfing, Kiting and Wake boarding

Watch the foolhardy boarders and surfers on the lake on a day of strong Easterly winds. Do not try to imitate them unless you are also an expert. Otherwise, wait for a calmer day to try one of these fascinating sports.

Scheduled Boat Trips on the Three Lakes (Lake Murten, Neuchâtel and Biel)

Choose one of the many options for a leisurely cruise on Lake Murten, or take the boat to Neuenburg/Neuchâtel or even Biel/Bienne. Spend between an hour to 8 hours on the lakes which are all linked by way of a canal.

Cruise on River Aare from Biel/Bienne to Solothurn

The three hours cruise is spectacular. It links the bilingual city of Biel/Bienne with the baroque city of Solothurn. It is considered as one of the most beautiful river cruises in Switzerland. Both cities are worth a visit and during your boat trip you might see the nesting storks in Altreu, you cruise by the historic town of Büren and you will experience the lock at Port.
