Switzerland

Murten in the Canton of Fribourg

The Lake of Morat or Murten, as well as the Lake of Neuchatel, have many relics of the lake-dwellers.

The castle dates to the time of Count Peter of Savoy II who ordered its construction in 1255.

Morat, with its proud old Castle (1522 feet a/s) is an ancient little town on the right bank of the lake named after it. It is dear to all the Swiss, in memory of the great battle in which the troops of the Confederation repulsed Charles
the Bold of Burgundy and his army.
