Yverdon-les-Bains

The spa in Yverdon-les-Bains perpetuates an ancient tradition of care and wellbeing. Located on Upper Lake Neuchâtel, the town has a varied historical heritage evidenced by its old town and its museums.

The quality of the waters in Yverdon-les-Bains has been reputed for 1,500 years: the sulphur spring water gushes forth at 29°. The spa and its care centre offer stay fit or get back into shape programmes as well as personalised programmes for elite sportspeople. It has three pools, two of which are outside, whirlpools and massage jets providing wellness and serenity to its visitors.

Bearing witness to its long history on the shore of Lake Neuchâtel, Yverdon-les-Bains has a unique site consisting of 45 Neolithic menhirs, Celtic vestiges probably dating back to 5,000 B.C. Its castrum, a medieval castle built by the House of Savoy, and a town centre full of medieval and neoclassical buildings also testify to its long history. The History Museum in the castle illustrates this past. Whereas the Swiss Fashion Museum, Maison d’Ailleurs – a science fiction museum – and Espace Jules Verne transport visitors to creations of the 21st century.

In addition to its building heritage, Yverdon-les-Bains has preserved an exceptional natural reserve: La Grande Cariçaie, the largest lakeside marshlands in Switzerland revealing their flora and fauna at the foot of Champ-Pittet castle. 40 km of shores alternating with parks line the lake between Yverdon-les-Bains and Morat.
