    The municipality of Ligerz, which seems to owe its name to a Roman named Ligerius, is one of the smallest municipalities in the canton of Bern.
    As a result of donations, various vineyards and houses in the community fell to monasteries from 1120. At the end of the 15th century, the municipality of Ligerz with Twann and the Tessenberg von Bern was acquired and the Landvogtei Nidau was incorporated. The municipality of Ligerz still belongs to the district of Nidau. During the French Revolution at the end of the 18th century, Ligerz was French territory for a short time.

    Ligerz. Very worth seeing the tiny village center and the church in the grapevines. Ligerz has a funicular to Prêles. This leads to the high plateau and above you have a great view over the Zealand. In addition, you can invite the bikes in the funicular and thus come without effort on the high plateau. Afterwards there is the possibility to drive back down to the lake through the Twannbergschlucht gorge or afterwards to the direction of Biel through the vineyards. Beautiful!

    The beautiful town on Lake Biel, known for its wine and the picturesque church, is always worth a visit.

    In 1261 the Michaels Chapel was mentioned at this point. Between 1522 and 1526 the adjoining church was built south of the tower.
