After a packed day, enjoy the sunset hours at a comfortable B&B.
Sunset at the Creux du Van is an incomparable experience.
Whether you visit in winter or summer, the Jura & Three Lakes region offers a breathtaking natural backdrop for your stay. The Creux du Van, for example, is a gigantic natural amphitheater with vertical rock walls that rise over 160 m above the deep valley basin below. The view from the top of the horseshoe is a spectacular 360-degree panorama of the lakes of the central plateau, the Alps, the valleys of the Jura, and France.
Anyone who has not yet seen a wetland landscape should head to the Etang de la Gruyère nature reserve. The upland moor extends across 56 hectares and has a peat layer that is nine meters thick, formed since the end of the ice ages. In the 17th century, an earthwork was built to dam the pond to operate a mill. A circular path leads around this blackest of lakes.
A trip to St. Peter's Island on Lake Biel or a visit to Grandson Castle should also be on your list of things to see. And if that isn't enough for you, walk the Crête du Chasseral ridge, along a magical path through forests, meadows, and a karst landscape with countless natural sinkholes. You can see across the entire central plateau down to the Alps.
Don't ignore the region’s charming towns and villages, however. Among the best-known are Biel/Bienne, Neûchatel, Murten, Delémont, St-Ursanne, Estavayer-le-Lac, Payerne, Yverdon-les-Bains and La Chaux-de-Fonds. They invite you to stroll and relax as you browse their boutiques and stop for a bite at their local restaurants.
