The secret Murten light circuit

Experience a mysterious and illuminating journey through six interactive rooms.

You know Murten, its castle, its town walls, and its lake front. But this town still holds many secrets, and only you have the key to discover them. Immerse yourself in this hidden world and let yourself be enchanted by the fascinating universe full of light!

They say Murten hides many secrets under its cobblestones and within its walls – a fantastic world of light and dreams, accessible only to those who have the key to the secret circuit. You can get a glimpse of these secrets every winter during the Light Festival, and this autumn there is a special tour of various rooms with light installations.

With your key, you become master of the rooms on the secret tour. When you push open the doors, you enter a fantastical world, a well-kept secret of the town of Murten.

In the six halls of the secret tour, you can discover luminescent works of art, some immersive, others that come alive.

The owl, the mascot, will accompany you through your adventure! 

After your journey, you won’t be able to resist the urge to dive back into the secret world of Murten.
