This easy hike starts in the old town of La Neuveville, then goes through the vineyards to the nice little church of Ligerz, and ends in Twann. Along the way you will have a stunning view across the lake Bielersee and to St Peter Island, and if the sky is very clear, all the way to the Alps in the background. The hike is really nice from May to October when the vineyards have leaves, but the best time is end of October when then leaves are turning yellow and red.
