Vue des Alpes - one of the nicest panoramas of the Swiss Alps


Carrefour de la Maladière

Carrefour de la Maladière

Nomen est omen. The gentle hills around Vue-des-Alpes allow fantastic views in all directions. No wonder that all parking places are taken on this pass. Away from the large road, however, the Jugar of Neuenburg is a biker's paradise. Tranquillity. The ride takes you over typical jurassic pastures right into rich pine forests. Now and then you will met a Métairie. Just relax and let go.
