<<"What are the must see things in Lake geneva, murten/morat on a winter weekend ?">>
As far as I am concerned, there are no "must see" things in the area. I mentioned Morat/Murten because I find it more interesting than Biel/Bienne. The old town retains its medieval walls ( you can walk the walls) and is larger than the old town in Biel. The location on the lake is nice. Plenty of restaurants. Plenty of tourists. Even in winter.
If you are interested in military history, go up on Mt. Vully, across the lake from Murten. Public transport is limited, however. Cold and windy up theree, but it was a military watch tower from prehistoric times to the present. The location gives good views of the best north-south migration routes.

The attached two images are of a sign on top of Mt. Vully, describing the fortifications. Some of the concrete fortifications are still exposed.
Sorry. no English, but the maps are self explanatory. There is also a partial reproduction of a Helvetic fortified camp from a couple of thousand years ago.
My own "do not miss" is a night and a meal at Hotel del'Ours, in Sugiez (Bas Vully) and enjoyment of a local wine from their extensive wine list. The vineyards of Monsieur Simonet produce particularly good wines. His store is on the main road in bas Vully.
