Can you imagine walking in one of the most beautiful wine regions of Switzerland? Well, in this case this walk & wine might be perfect for you. We will enjoy the beautiful scenary and wine of the famous Vully region (Fribourg). And there is even more. This time it is not only about enjoying walking, good conversation and delicious wines, I also have included a little cruise on Lake Neuchatel.
We meet at 7.50 below the blue angel at Zürich Hauptbahnhof and catch the reliable sbb train at 8:04 to arrive in Neuchatel at 9.35. Perhaps there is time for a quick coffee before we catch our boat at 10.00 and enjoy a cruise crossing the Lake Neuchatel. At 10.50 we start our walk in Portalban. After 8 km – about 1hrs45 min we will arrive at Madeleine Ruedin Vins (http://www.madeleineruedinvins.ch/index2.php?de), I guess around 12.45.
Now, since this is the day of the open Wineries in Vully, some wineries may charge a small fee for the tasting, while others offer tastings for free, in which case it is fair to buy some crispy wine or local food.
At around 14.00 we will continue to a real Chataux. After about one hour / 5 km we will arrive at Chataux de Mur http://www.domainesduvully.ch/ around 15.00 o’clock. Just check out the website.
From the Chataux de Mur there are two options
a) Go home - Catch the Bus to Ins
Mur (village) 16.47
Ins 17.11 – 17.17
Bern 17.52 – 18.02
b) Enjoy more - Catch the Boat to Murten
We will leave the Chataux at around 16.00 Uhr and walk to Motier about 3,5 km – 45 min. On the way there are plenty of other Vinards to check out, like the Ce la Touave dr - Route du Lac 90 – 1787 Môtier - http://www.biolley-vins.ch/
Môtier (Vully) 18:45 Murten 19:00 20 Min. to Railway station Murten 20:17 (if we are quick 19.17 ) Bern 20:52 - 21:02 (20.02)
Zürich HB 21:58 (20:58)
