Arc jurassien

In Thal many farms nestle between two Jura chains, the chemical industry is history. At Balsthal castles and ruins stand guard over the entrance to the valley. In Baselbiet the Jura chain changes to the gentler Tafeljura, we meet the first cherry trees.

Hints

Biking in swiss parks
The Thal Nature Park between two Jura chains appears to be very rural, but in fact has a long industrial history. Now the watch-making factories and the foundries are closed; the comb factory has been converted to a fascinating museum.
