Hint

Intro

From the roof of the canton of Solothurn, with views across the Jura arc to the Swiss Plateau and snow-capped Alps, and on through forests and typical Jura meadows. The first third is also a Planetenweg (planet path). Linguistic border at Montagne de Romont.

Description

Today’s stage already begins at an altitude of 1,200 m, so there are only 300 m more to climb to reach the Hasenmatt mountain. A cross adorns the summit of the Hasenmatt, with Lake Biel extending out far below. This is the highest point of the stage. Along the typical stone walls of the Jura, the trail follows the Jura Crest before the steady decline begins.

This is another chance to enjoy the spellbinding views all the way down to Lake Biel, before the trail finally descends into dense forest. Houses start to dot the landscape in various clearings, and you soon reach Plagne, the first village after the linguistic border. With 361 residents, this is the smallest village in the Bernese Jura. From Plagne, it is a little over an hour’s walk to Frinvillier, where a bit of a culture shock awaits. The peace and tranquillity of the Jura Crest Trail stands in stark contrast to the various motorways that lead directly into the village. The destination today lies directly between these motorways.
