The route from Cluny to Switzerland

The Cluny Way is a hiking trail that connects the Cluniac sites of Switzerland in eleven stages, from Bassins to Rougemont. The abbey and the mediaeval market town of Romainmôtier figure among the unmissable steps along the trail.

At a total length of 329 km, the Cluny Way is represented in stages in the form of route-map sheets, one sheet for each stage. Thanks to these eleven sheets, the hiker can obtain the appropriate topographic map, containing all the necessary details for hiking along the marked route. Furthermore, in order to give a historical aspect to the hike, numerous points of interest are shown along the route.

Cluny Abbey was founded by William the Pious in 910. In its heyday, its power influence and reach extended across the whole of Europe. It was mother house to 1400 daughter-houses but disappeared in 1790 when religious vows were prohibited by the French Revolution.
