Montsevelier - Fringeli - Delémont




The hike from Montsevelier across the ridge path to Delémont is a tour through a landscape that is green throughout. The tour offers a great opportunity to actively experience the use of two languages. If you only hear French in Montsevelier, the farmer on Fringeli will speak a true Baselbiet German dialect. After another hour of hiking, you will once again be greeted in French in the Nature Friends' House (Naturfreundehaus) on Retemberg mountain.

Delémont:The town once again became a part of Switzerland in the wake of the Viennese Congress of 1815, and finally became a district within the canton of Jura. The main city of the canton of Jura, about 40 minutes away from Biel and Basel, and the surrounding area are reputed to have the hottest summers in the Jura region.

Rivers have carved out their way through plains and hills, thus forming wonderful ravines. There are many local peculiarities and special things to discover, including Art in the museums and galleries.

For families: Sleeping on straw in Martial Lachat in Courcelon, 3 km East of Delsberg. Activities: Viewing of farmhouse, visiting a small country cheese dairy, nature hiking trail from nearby Vermes (10 km), climbing adventure in the nearby "Gorges de Moutier" (Ravines of Moutier)
