Your way to the Bijouland
The Bijouland can be reached quickly and conveniently from Bern using public transport. BLS’s trains take you directly to Murten, Neuchâtel and La Chaux-de-Fonds, from where you can reach your excursion destination on one of the many trains and buses.
BLS RegioExpress Bern–La Chaux-de-Fonds
The BLS RegioExpress Bern–Neuchâtel–La Chaux-de-Fonds connects the UNESCO World Heritage City of La Chaux-de-Fonds with the capital city of Bern at hourly intervals. Aficionados of a piece of Swiss history can thus combine their visit to the International Watch Museum or a detour to the house of the world-famous architect Le Corbusier with a tour of the Haute Horlogerie in Neuchâtel or a visit to the Centre Dürrenmatt. Yet there is also plenty to see and experience along the railway line: the ride takes passengers right through the beautifully maintained and (depending on the season) riotously colourful vegetable fields of the Seeland district. Between Lake Biel, Lake Neuchâtel and Lake Murten, the local vegetable gardeners grow more than 60 different varieties of vegetable the whole year round on an area of around 2,600 hectares.
Along the way, passengers can expect to find a variety of options for lovers of archaeology, water-based adventures by the River Doubs or the lake, and new adventures amidst the beautiful nature. And you should definitely not miss out on a fine meal by Lake Neuchâtel.
Dividing train (2 destinations)
S5 Bern–Kerzers–Neuchâtel and Murten/Morat (–Payerne)
Some of our trains have two destinations. This is because at a certain station, the train will be split into two sections. The division of the train into different sections allows us to offer more direct connections, and more seats during peak hours. The S5 normally operates with two train sections. There are three sections during the morning and evening rush hours. The front section of the train travels to Neuchâtel, while the rear section goes to Murten/Morat (–Payerne). If the train has three sections, the front section of the train travels to Neuchâtel, while the two rear sections go to Murten/Morat (–Payerne). Please always note the destinations shown on the train. If you find that you are in the wrong section of the train during your journey, you can change at Kerzers.
