Hiking: Chemin du Jura

On charming paths

A visit to the Ajoie is an unforgettable experience, especially when the cherry blossom is blooming. White blossoming cherry trees line the roadside and decorate this idyllic area. But a visit to the orchard of the Jura is worthwhile even during other seasons.

The small town of Porrentruy entices with its stately castle and the red shining roofs can be seen from far away. Delémont welcomes you with a well-preserved city wall and St-Ursanne has an inviting beautiful bridge. All these pearls are linked together by the Chemin du Jura, which runs along charming paths through the Ajoie.
