La Brévine: Place du village

At the extreme corner of Switzerland (on the Swiss-French border) you will find the high valley of La Brévine; almost every Swiss child knows this name. Here, the temperatures dip to Siberian lows. But between spring and fall you will enjoy the mildest side of the Jurassic pastures: occasional farmsteads, the idyllic Lac des Taillères and the gently rolling wooded hills. The hike from La Brévine to the border town of Les Verrières opens up a melancholic, tranquil landscape of strange attractiveness.
