River cruise at the Aare

Badhausstrasse 1a, 2501 Biel/Bienne

Solothurn – Biel; Switzerland's loveliest river trip

The voyage along the Aare between Solothurn and Biel ranks as the loveliest river trip in Switzerland. The BSG Lake Biel Navigation Company (Bielersee-Schifffahrtsgesellschaft) invites you to experience the region from its waterways. Visits to historic little towns, excursions along the riverbank or simply enjoying the river itself – we were inspired and totally convinced! The nature conservation zone with splendid views of the Jura chain, and cruising past the little towns and villages, make for a special experience. Of course, the vessel's crew spoilt us with culinary delights. Options include a small or large breakfast, a delicious luncheon menu or simply a piece of cake and a cup of coffee in the afternoon.
