This trail is one of 67 wheelchair accessible trails across Switzerland described on the Mobility International Switzerland website:The circular route on the St. Petersinsel in Berner Seeland is a real feast for the eyes. Surrounded by the idyllic Bielersee lake, you go as you please on an easy path through this luxuriant nature reserve with many species of plants.From the pretty Erlach harbour, the route leads from the mainland to the island. Mainly level, it runs mostly along field paths through the varied island landscape. The St. Petersinsel is car free, making a visit to relax and tank up on energy all the more inviting. You soon switch off and unwind, completely in harmony with nature. The stretch leads over a level peninsula where you can experience and enjoy the welcome solitude of an untouched plant kingdom. As you stroll through airy woodland, past wide fields and the wonderful and wild lake shore, you’ll be filled with a happy holiday feeling. The woods as well as the Heideweg which is especially rich in biodiversity are under a conservation order. There are many rest spots to take a break. The barbecue grills right at the edge of the water are particularly popular. Of historical interest, the Klosterhotel and Restaurant also offer a unique ambiance. It’s well worth stopping here and enjoying the remarkable views before starting your journey back to Erlach.
