Travel Guide

General Information About Jura

"The mountains of Neuchatel seem just like a green paradise between the blue sky and lake. Le Creux du Van and the asphalt mines in the Val-de-Travers as well as the towns of La Chaux-de-Fonds and Le Locle, which were recognized by UNESCO in June 2009 for their remarkable watch-making heritage, are always worth a visit. 

Marked by nature and tradition, the Bernese Jura offers its visitors an abundance of free spaces between valleys, mountains and meadows of flowers, the ideal place for hiking. The Chasseral, highest point of the region, is a nature reserve. From its summit at an altitude of 1607 m, you can enjoy an incredible all-around panorama across lakes and valleys. 

The spacious canton of Jura, situated at an altitude of 1000 m, is the meeting place of man and horse. Rivers flow gently along plains and hills, then tumble into impressive gorges. Discover some wonders of nature such as the nature reserve Clos-du-Doubs or the high plain of the Franches-Montagnes. 

How can one best describe the Three-Lakes district? It makes you think of nature, vegetable plantations, vineyards, modern towns, picturesque villages, the mixture of the German and French languages, but also of water. As a matter of fact, a boat trip on the lakes of Biel, Murten and Neuchatel or the river Aare is an unforgettable experience. The great classic cruise, the Three-Lakes Tour, should not be missed in any case. 

Bikers also appreciate the Three-Lakes district. Two national routes run across it, and many other trails invite to enjoy the sport at all levels. The trails leading through the vegetable plantations are especially suitable for families. 

The diversity of the towns is quite striking too. First of all Solothurn, the most beautiful baroque town of Switzerland, then Murten and its historic town wall, Estavayer-le-Lac, the medieval town per se, Neuchatel at the foot of the vineyards and Biel, the watch-makers‘ town with its many unrecognized historic and architectural treasures. Visitors will be enchanted by all these riches"
