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.

"Col-des-Roches" Cave Mills

If brooks and rivers run only sluggishly above ground, hydropower is nearly impossible to harness. That is why the inhabitants of the valley of Le Locle began to use subterranean streams. This is how the cave mills of "Col-des-Roches" arose.

Château des Monts Watch Museum

The main town of the district of Jura Neuchâtel is considered the cradle of Swiss watch making. This industrial city was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site together with La Chaux-de-Fonds in 2009. Apart from the art museum, "Musée des Beaux-Arts du Locle", those interested in culture would find a visit to the Bauern- und Handwerksmuseum (Farmers' and Crafts Museum) and a tour of the Louis XVI style castle "Château des Monts" with its watch museum well worth their while.
