Brief description of the hike:
This is a medium hike in rather flat terrain taking about 5 hours to complete. Last year we were in German part of Switzerland; this year we hike in the French part. From Neuchatel we will enjoy a lake voyage in dazzling sunlight leaving 12:10 to Cudrefin where we will comfortably hike up the Mont Vully while admiring the Alps from afar. The journey will end in the beautiful and astonishingly well preserved medieval city of Murten. Arriving about 17:00 in Murten we will have a stroll around, have something to eat before we leave around 19:00 arriving back to Zürich after 21:00. For bathing enthusiasts the Neuchatelsee would be to prefer as it is less shallow.
