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.
