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 beauty of nature. At the end, while arriving in Reuchenette, you'll find a great little... 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 parking.

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 you start from Biel city after a nice 30 min (fast) 1 hour (looking around)... 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 the gorge. The gorge walk is done really well with lots of photo opportunities along... 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 once during winter when the small river is frozen and the walls are full of... 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 Biel so you can have a drink or lunch. There are some picnic areas,;1 with... 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! I hit mine pretty hard :/

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 (stop:"Taubenloch") or you can go to the top of the gorge (Frinvillier) by bus or... 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 the ravine (you should eventually take a left to get off the main road). It... More

One of my favorite hike, yet so close to the city but when you've entered the canyon you are like in another world, time stands still and you can relax listening to the whooshing of the water, you will be delighted. Don't forget to take a small snack and something to drink with you! Enjoy
