Murten, Switzerland - Part II

The pictures ENLARGE if you click on them. A town wall that encircles the town provided protection. The almost entirely preserved wall, the only one in Switzerland which you can walk all the way round, has offered visitors a great view of the nearby lake and the roofs of the Old Town.

Lake Murten with its swans.

The medieval town of Murten on the south-east bank of the Lake Morat has preserved its original appearance, with the alleyways of the Old Town and the shady arcades. In the evening, you can watch the sunset over the lake, with great views of Mont Vully and the Jura.

We had a nice dinner at the Hotel Murtenhof overlooking the Lake Morat.

That looks like a good size dinner. How fortunate you are to travel as you do.
