There's no end to the list of things to do in your free time in Biel/Bienne. An entire world of outdoor activities is waiting to be discovered just outside your doorstep! Biel/Bienne is perfectly nestled in the midst of pristine natural surroundings between the Jura, Lake of Biel/Bienne, and the vast region of the Seeland. School children have every opportunity to try out a wide array of sports through school, for example, and there are clubs for just about every interest under the sun.

For those searching for a more culturally enriching experience, there is plenty to discover in both the established, and more experimental arts. Biel/Bienne's bilingualism creates a unique environment, fosters talent, and is an immense source of inspiration for creativity in its native population. Biel/Bienne is hometown to the well-known Swiss band Pegasus and rapper Nemo, both proud recipients of several Swiss Music Awards. Biel/Bienne is also home to the last AJZ (Independent youth club) of Switzerland - the "Chessu" -, which features concerts, live acts, and other cultural events.
