Rougemont

The stunning mountain scenery and old, decorated chalets are typical for Rougemont. The village in the Vaudois Alps has a rich cultural and historic heritage and is a popular summer and winter resort for nature lovers.
Rougemont (1007m) nestles into the pre-Alpine landscape and is the highest resort of the Pays-d’Enhaut holiday region in Canton Vaud. The impressive chalk flanks of the Rubli extend above the dark green pine forests. The Vanelschlucht (gorge) carries the frothing waters of the Saane towards the Gruyères region. The Montreux-Bernese Oberland Railway ensures Rougemont access to the Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) region and the Bernese Simmental.

Rougemont has preserved its rich cultural and architectural heritage to the present day. The village has many chalets worth seeing. Some of them are over 400 years old and richly embellished with carvings and frescos, decorated with flowers and inscribed with the names of the builder and first owner. Rougemont was founded in 1080 by Cluniac monks. The Romanesque 11th century church and the 16th century castle are important cultural relics that bear witness to the epoch. Within, the church has the appearance of a cathedral in miniature. The local tourism board offers guided tours on the architecture and history of Rougemont.

The famed L'Etivaz AOP cheese is still produced the old-fashioned way over a log fire on several alps at an altitude of between 1500 and 2000m and visitors are welcome to watch. Old customs contrast with diverse modern leisure activities that are on offer in both summer and winter. The Videmanette mountain station with its splendid views is an idea starting point.

Summer

A hiking trail that can be completed in a day leads from the Videmanette mountain station over four passes to L'Etivaz through La Pierreuse, the largest nature conservation area in French-speaking Switzerland and fore-Alpine landscape of national significance with crags, flower meadows, moor landscape and forest. The sun-exposed side of the valley at around 1100m has a panorama trail that leads through the entire Pays-d’Enhaut. Climbing enthusiasts will find three «via ferrata» fixed rope routes in summer with different degrees of difficulty (from the Videmanette valley station) and mountain bikers have an extensive grid of signposted trails through the Pays d’Enhaut at their disposal. One of the most beautiful whitewater rafting courses in Switzerland lies between the Vanel and Gérignoz gorges.

Winter

The Videmanette ski region has challenging slopes, an Alpine character and a direct link to the Gstaad winter sports region.Rougemont also has a cross-country skiing run, winter hiking trails, snow shoe trails and a sledge run.

Highlights

  • Cultural-historical treasures: Romanesque church and castle and centuries-old timber chalets dominate the village landscape.
  • Videmanette chairlift: accessible in summer and winter, this facility is the starting point for many activities.
  • L'Etivaz AOP cheese: produced over a log fire in alp huts in the Pays d’Enhaut or at the Le Chalet Fromagerie show dairy in Château-d'Oex.
  • Montreux-Bernese Oberland Railway (MOB): The Pays d’Enhaut lies on the panorama route that runs from Montreux on Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) to Gstaad and Zweisimmen in the Bernese Oberland.
