La Broye Canal

The Broye Canal

The River Broye has its source in the Prealps of Fribourg. After crossing the Cantons of Fribourg and Vaud, its waters flow into Lake Morat, at Salavaux. On the opposite side of the lake, the course of the Broye picks up again, transformed into a man-made canal. Linking Lakes Morat and Neuchatel, the Broye Canal is a must for those walkers who wish to visit the Three-Lake-Country, on foot, by bicycle and, of course, by boat.

Thousands of years ago, Lakes Morat, Neuchatel and Bienne were one. Their shores welcomed the first inhabitants of Switzerland and still have the remains of lake-dwelling sites which are currently inscribed in UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites. In those early times, Mont Vully emerged from the lake, connected to the banks of the river by a thin strip of earth. Thanks to their history and the development of leisure activities, the Three-Lake-Country and Mount Vully are known by all Swiss people.
