Guided tours, Murten

"As soon as you pass through the walls of this small medieval town, you will be immersed in the tranquil atmosphere of a Mediterranean climate. Enjoy a coffee underneath the arcades or a walk by the lake shore and time will stand still for a few hours of happiness. Founded by the Zähringen family, the town of Murten was besieged by Charles the Bold, who went on to suffer a crushing defeat in 1476. The battle is well documented in the town's history museum. Today, the town’s outer walls and the arcades on the high street are good reasons to go for a stroll. On the shores of the lake, many restaurants offer terraces that make for a Mediterranean atmosphere. Would you like a guided tour? There are so many to choose from: a classic tour, a history tour (the Battle of Murten), a theatrical tour, by bike, a treasure hunt..."
