Chemin de Romont et Stierenberg

This circular outing on the first chain of the Jura mountains is characterised partly by exceptional and diverse landscapes and partly by the cantonal and linguistic frontiers symbolised by ancient and magnificent landmarks.
This hike starts from Plagne, a village that often escapes the clouds of the Swiss plateau thanks to its privileged topographical and climatic location. Once you have overcome the first few hundred metres uphill, the mountain meadows with their countless chalets stretch all the way to the Mountain of Romont. Take a coffee break on the terrace of the smallholding of the same name and soak up this very special atmosphere, cradled by the pleasant tinkling of the cowbells.

The rest of the route is essentially a maze of sinkholes, swallow holes and wooded pastures: a fascinating collection of Jura landscapes. The crossing into the canton of Solothurn will not pass unnoticed, as the signposts suddenly switch to German. After passing through the town of Granges, the way back runs via the picturesque villages of Romont and Vauffelin, past a wonderful 18th century church with the oldest bells in the protestant Jura. A short final climb leads you back to Plagne.
