The stark beauty and unspoilt nature of the high valley and the lake attract countless visitors all year round; in summer mainly for water sports, biking and hiking and in winter for ice-skating and cross-country skiing. Set between Mont Tendre (1679 m) and the densely wooded chain of the Risoux, the Lac de Joux is the largest expanse of water in the Jura region. During the summer months you can take a boat trip round the lake.

Regional Nature Park Schaffhausen

The Schaffhausen Region has a unique, traditional cultural landscape. The Randen hills, the vast vineyards, and the Rhine, define this region.

Combe Grède

A huge crevice vertically divides the ridge over St-Imier into two parts – the Combe Grède. The craggy cliff faces are inhabited by chamois and marmots, even pellegrine falcons and wood grouse can be seen. The 14-km-long and steep walk from Villeret through the Combe Grède direct to the Chasseral is very demanding, takes a good 6 hours and should only be undertaken by experienced hikers. The start and end point can be reached using public transportation.
