The Vaudoise town of Vallorbe lies in a valley basin of the river Orbe, directly on the French border. An inconspicuous chalet is nestled against the slope above Vallorbe. It is the disguised entrance to the fortress "Pré-Giroud".
Explore the secrets of the Tamina Gorge on a beautiful hiking loop. The returning route via the beautiful natural bridge to the village of Pfäfers (Dorf Pfäfers) along the Porta Romana and past the Wartenstein Ruin will also inspire you.
The Roman Mosaics of Orbe consist of eight magnificent mosaic floors that decorated a Gallic-Roman estate dating back to the year 170. The mosaics give the visitor an inkling of the enormous wealth of the lord of the manor and gentleman farmer, whose villa had more than 100 rooms.
