City/Town: 3280 Murten - Morat
Event Type: Other
Meeting Point: none

I am not organising an event, this is simply to anounce it.

Murten is the German name for the beautiful small town of Morat (French name) on Lac du Morat, in the west of Switzerland. It is a historical gem, not to be missed!

At 9 am on 22 June is the traditional parade of school children through the town. The town will be decorated everywhere with flowers.

Also celebrated is the 1476 victory of the battle of Morat against the French Duke of Burgundy, the army from Berne arrived just in time!
