Waterway has access to:

Lake of Morat / Canal de la Broye | Switzerland

Lake of Murten (Morat)
It is only 8 kilometres long and 2.8 broad but still very popular to boaters because it has with the Broye-canal a connection to the Lake of Neuenburg (Neuchâtel) and with the Zihl-canal another one to the Lake of Biel (Bienne). Together, the three lakes are the biggest water-sport estuary lying entirely on Swiss territory. The beautiful medieval town of Murten and the wines of Mont Vully contribute as well to the popularity of this region.

Places along the Lake:
Murten / Faoud / Vallamand / Môtier / Sugiez / Muntelier
