La Grande Cariçaie nature reserve

Chemin des Trois-Lacs

«Water is life», a simple law of nature particularly valid for «Three Lake Country». The «Chemin des Trois-Lacs» trail leads along natural shorelines, through reed beds and into nature reserves which give information on sensitive topics.

«Water is life», a law of nature, above all valid for the Bieler-, Neuenburger- and Murtensee triangle of lakes. There’s plenty to discover in compact «Three Lake Country»: natural shorelines, reed beds, nature reserves and educational paths. Sandy beaches and medieval towns offering various excursions, on foot, by bike or boat.

The «Chemin des Trois-Lacs» is year-round hiking fun for all ages. Apart for a detour up Mont Vully, it leads mostly along the lake shores. So it’s easy to join at any point, take each stage on a separate day, or combine it with a boat trip.

Highlights along the way: «La Sauge» Nature Reserve and the «Champ-Pittet» Pro Natura Center located in the heart of Grande Cariçaie, Switzerland’s largest lakeside marshland. A ramble through the reed landscape along wooden catwalks is an experience for all senses, in tune with nature, immersed in the immediate surroundings. Hear and see everything that crawls or turns tail, identify rare plants or climb a tower and wildlife watch.
