Hello,

Un petit retour sur les bords du lac de Bienne.
La lumire n'est pas formidable mais la vue depuis la colline qui surplombe le chteau reste trs belle.
L'le Saint-Pierre s'tend derrire la village en direction de l'est.

Lors de la construction du chteau, l'Ile Saint-Pierre tait vraiment une le. Seule les petits monts au milieu du lac mrgaient.
Le niveau des lacs de Neuchtel, Bienne et Morat ont t abbaisss en 1868 - 1878 et ensuite entre 1962 et 1973.
Le but de ces corrections taient d'viter les grandes inondations qui avaient lieu rgulirment.

English version :


Hello,

A small return on the shores of Lake of Bienne.
The light is not great but the view from the hill overlooking the castle is very beautiful.

The Saint-Pierre Island stretches behind the town towards the east.

During the construction of the castle, the Saint-Pierre Island was indeed an island. Only small amounts in the middle of the lake emerged.
The level of Lakes Neuchtel, Biel and Murten were lowered in 1868 - 1878 and then between 1962 and 1973.
The goal of these corrections were to prevent major floods that occurred regularly.

A+
