Guided tour of Biel's old town

"The old town is the jewel of Biel/Bienne. This was where the Romans worshipped the God "Benelus" for many centuries. Incidentally, Biel/Bienne owes its name to this Roman deity. The Ring is the oldest square in our town, as you walk around here you will discover a magnificent, magical, romantic and peaceful place. Follow one of our town guides and you will embark upon a journey through time to learn about the history and tales of the town. We look forward to welcoming you here!"
