Hiking holidays Jura Crest Trail, Regensberg - Solothurn

Hiking: Jura Crest Trail

A smooth start

The village Regensbergis a picture-perfect start for one of the most scenic hikes in Switzerland. The first part of this hike is charming, but soon comes to a rough end on the rugged ridge of Lägerngrat. This first challenge ends with a cooling bath in the small town of Baden.

From here you continue past the confluence of the rivers Aare, Limmat and Reuss to the crests of Jura. The trail takes you past castles and ruins and former fortresses to the small village Balsthal and its continuous up and down is going to prepare for the next legs of the Jura Crest trail.

Characteristic

For the Lägerngrat on the first day you need to be sure-footed and free from vertigo. However, you can easily avoid the exposed passages. Otherwise, the tour is easy and good to walk. Only the long last stage is challenging.
