From the city's walls, there are expansive views of the local countryside, and other buildings. The steps are easy to navigate and the walkway is covered.

Murten (or Morat), located on the north-south route (E4/A1) between Berne and Lausanne, is a small medieval town on the shore of Murten Lake (which is quite nice, too). Various attractions have been well preserved, including the castle, the ring wall, the old streets, and the beautiful arcades. It is worth taking some time to walk around, take pictures, and enjoy one of the many little cafés or taverns... Murten is the capital of the Lake District of the canton of Fribourg, so do take time to enjoy the lakes and scenic landscapes in the area, too!

Easily reached by car or train from Bern or Fribourg, Murten (Morat) is a perfectly conserved medieval town sitting on the lake of the same name. Situated on the French /German language 'barrier and site of the 1476 battle of the Swiss confederation against the duke of Burgundy, time appears to have been on hold on the ramparts of the small city. A bustling market town,it is a great place to visit, walk ramparts, look down ont the lake and drink a glass of local white wine.
Visit the Roman city of Aventicum (Avenches) while there. It is just a few kms.
