Chemin du Jura bernois (route No. 91)
The first surprise of this hike is the Moron Tower (Tour de Moron). Designed by the famous architect Mario Botta, it still brings you a sense of wonder every time. Then come the landscapes. Impressive and varied, they bring you to the city of La Chaux- de-Fonds passing through combined green landscapes and dark gorges, rocky basins and small picturesque towns, huddled on the edges of the valley. This route also brings you a wide variety of fine local food and drinks.
