Overview

The Taubenloch is one of the most popular hikes in the region – perhaps because of its romantic surrounding, the pleasantly cool temperatures, or the easy access that allows families to discover the gorge. But one thing is for sure: a stroll through the mysterious Taubenloch gorge is magical.

By far, around Biel, that's my favorite hike. The hike is very pleasant, not that tough, but you'll get most spectacular views on the river, walking through the gorges. You can enjoy little breaks here and there, picnicking close to the river and enjoying the...More

I can come here just for refreshing or when I get bored. Walk and hear water's sound makes me better. It feels peaceful. You can come from Bienne/Biel side (Bozingen street) or the other side of this river (Frinvilier). From Frinvilier, it's easier to get...More

But not only nature, humans as well. A very nice canyon where one can walk inside the rocky wall and over several small bridges looking the water roaring. Specially spring time when snow is melting there is a lot of water going through. And if...More

We weren't that impressed with Biel Bienne but loved this gorge. It was difficult to find the entry, and even more difficult to find a place to park the campervan. We actually came at it from Frinvillier where we could park at the entry to...More

Gorges are like a wonder in our world. This small gorge is the place to feel the nature and the force of the water. The walls around are very high and it is narrow and even the climate is different inside there. Go and visit...More

When you see the tiny entrance you have no idea that there is an enormous canyon just on the other side. Its like entering a secret world. The walk isn't that long and there is a restaurant on the other side of the canyon from...More

I absolutely love Taubenlochschluct. It is a peaceful place away from the busy world. My boyfriend and I took so many pictures. It's really just a nice walk that anyone can do, not a big time commitment and not difficult. Do watch your head though!...More

Although close to the bustling town of Biel, visiting the gorge is like stepping into another world, where you walk through the woods and only hear the noise of the water. You can walk up or down, the bottom can be reached by city bus...More

Take a short train trip from Biel/Bienne up to Frinvillier, the Swiss version of a whistlestop: In other words, blink and you'll miss it. Once off the train, double back down toward the rail underpass and continue north to follow the signs through Frinvillier to...More
