Romainmôtier, member of “The Most Beautiful Villages in Switzerland”

Romainmôtier is a must-see village, both in terms of its prestigious monuments and its beautifully preserved natural environment that is highly appreciated by hikers. Nestling in the Jura mountainside and crossed by the river Nozon, the small medieval village is best explored on foot. Its picturesque streets offer superb views of the ochre- and yellow-coloured roofs below. The contrast is even more striking from the top of the Forel Belvedere or from the road from Juriens.

The thousand-year-old abbey church sets the rhythm of the entire village. This church is a Cluniac site and Switzerland’s oldest Romanesque-style building. A unique site, whose walled enclosure has partially survived and whose vestiges let visitors easily imagine the grandeur of the former monastery.

The stroll ends invariably on “Place du Bourg” for a taste of the famous local beer or at “Maison du Prieur” opposite Tour de l’Horloge where homemade pies are on offer.
