The name was first put down on paper in 1196. But the roots of our village go back much further, all the way to the Stone Age. Mörigen bay, now a popular leisure area, was settled by the so-called pile dwellers from 3800 B.C. and was considered the largest pile dwelling settlement on Lake Biel. Until the middle of the 20th century, Mörigen remained a small farm village. But then many town residents discovered that it had an ideal location. The village grows and family homes spring up between active farmhouses. Within 50 years the population almost quadruples, from around 200 to 800. The farm village has become a piece of history and, as a gem on Lake Biel, one of the most popular residential villages on the southern lakeshore.
