Rando Avenches Tourisme

Avenches-Morat / via the lake

This hike for everyone takes you along the shores of Lake Murten between Avenches and Murten.

Starting from the Place de l'Eglise in the centre of Avenches, this walk takes you to the banks of the lake along the Eau Noire. Completely renatured, the watercourse is now home to numerous indigenous species and benefits the beaver and kingfisher. Its tree-lined banks also provide welcome coolness on hot summer days.
After reaching the beach and enjoying a delicious ice cream, your route takes you along the shores of the lake, between forests and reeds, small secret beaches and villages, to the gates of the town of Murten for a welcome break on one of the many hospitable terraces.

Free parking at the Route du Faubourg or at the sports area near the station.
Return either by train from Morat station or by taking the Avenches-Morat / via Villarepos route
