We leave Berne at 09:53 reaching Biel at 10:16 and walk to the boat embarking wharf. The boat leaves at 10:40 and arrives at St. Petersinsel Nord at 11:30.
After a few minutes’ walk, we have lunch at the peninsula’s lovely restaurant. The place offers a good selection of fish menus as well as various other plates. For details of the menu, see http://www.st-petersinsel.ch/download/StPetersinsel_Tageskarte_St_Petersinsel_2014.pdf
After the meal, we walk along the Heideweg (natural reserve) to Erlach (approximately 1 hour). There we may have ‘Zvieri’ in one of the restaurants in this small but pretty historic village.
