Jura Express

Discover off-the-beaten track Switzerland with its undulating hills dotted with horse farms.

La Chaux-de-Fonds – Le Noirmont – Glovelier/Tavannes

This is watch country and so it is only befitting that La Chaux-de-Fonds has one of the world’s most eminent watch museums. From there, chug through the beautiful countryside to the charming and untouched villages of Le Noirmont and Glovelier/Tavannes. From Glovelier, there is a lovely and well-posted 4-hour hike to St.Ursanne.

Recently, some remnants of Roman roads and a Roman tunnel were found near Tavannes, also a good departure point for interesting hikes. There are also train connections to the rest of the Swiss Travel System in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Glovelier and Tavannes.
The Jura Railway trains run at hourly intervals.
