MURTEN / MURAT
a small town (west of bern) which sits on a hill overlooking lake murten ...
its medieval town walls and towers as well as a castle are well-preserved ...
the main street with lots of shops and restaurants looks like a market place,
while the smaller lanes contain lovely residences ... there are many picturesque
details, such as funny metalwork on fountains, unusual shop signs, little gnomes
on window sills and so on ... and of course the swiss people love big clocks
on towers ... for the best views, walk around town on the walls!
