Two lakes, a world of leisure activities (F)

Leaving the Joux Valley, this route shows the diversity of the Yverdon-les-Bains Region, offering a whole host of tourist attractions featuring the region’s historical heritage, crafts, wine-making or culture in its broadest sense.

There are many cultural points of interest along the way to Yverdon-les-Bains, including a chance to discover the history of the iron industry or visit a military fort and a grand Roman dwelling in Orbe. Families love the animals roaming almost free in the Juraparc and the magic of the Vallorbe Caves. History enthusiasts stop at Romainmôtier to admire the Cluniac architecture and its magnificent abbey church, while wine connoisseurs will enjoy meeting the wine-makers of the Côtes de l’Orbe in their cellars.

In Switzerland, all roads lead to a lake and this is no exception. The biggest completely Swiss lake, Lake Neuchâtel, brings water to Yverdon-les-Bains, famous for its spa centre. Lovers of science fiction are more familiar with the Maison d’Ailleurs, a unique museum in Europe. Continuing on your way, revisit your childhood in Sainte-Croix, the music box capital.
