Surrounded by a fine sandy beach on Lake Murten’s shores, the Avenches Campsite welcomes you for a break with family or friends, in a privileged natural setting.
The Avenches Campsite Beach is located on Lake Murten’s shores and will delight you with its fine sandy beach as well as the cooling lake, open for swimming. The campsite offers a modern, comfortable infrastructure, convivial atmosphere and a breathtaking panorama of the Vully.
Many fun-filled activities and events await you from July to August. Water sports, craft workshops and musically-themed evenings promise unforgettable moments throughout the summer. Free WiFi is available. A children’s playground, a beach volleyball court, petanque/bocce courts, as well as a waterfront restaurant, a grocery store and snack stand make your stay a pleasant one. Pedal boats, paddle boards and canoes are also available for hire.
Avenches and its flower-filled historical center, bordered by pleasant shaded terraces, is one of the most beautiful villages in Switzerland. It is easily reached in a few minutes by public transport or bicycle. The medieval city is rich in events and its music festivals invade the Roman Arenas throughout the summer. The ancient Roman capital of Helvetia’s archaeological heritage is exceptional and unique in Switzerland. A hike or a bike ride into the heart of this Roman site rewards you with relaxation and well-being. You’ll even be able to discover the horse world with a horse-drawn carriage ride at the National Stud Farm and the National Equestrian Institute of Avenches.
The evolution of the pandemic situation linked to covid-19 and the current context of progressive deconfinement in the canton of Vaud now make it possible to relax the measure of closure of campsites in Vaud imposed by the State of Vaud on 7 April last.
Following the Federal Council's communiqué of 27 May, authorising the opening of the campsites to passing tourists from SATURDAY 6 June, the Camping Plage d'Avenches is delighted to welcome back its loyal guests and new clientele for the summer period, until 31 October 2020. The health safety measures decreed by the Federal Office of Public Health are implemented on site and must be strictly respected by our guests (social distancing on the site and when using the common premises, hygiene rules, etc.).
The management of Avenches Tourism and the entire team of the Camping Plage d'Avenches thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you, from June 6th, on the shores of Lake Morat.
