Hiking holidays Jura Crest Trail, Regensberg - Solothurn

Hiking: Jura Crest Trail

A smooth start

The village of Regensberg lies picturesquely on the outermost foothills of the Jura hills. This is where the adventure begins for many long-distance hikers on the Jura-Höhenweg, which leads in a crooked arc to Lake Geneva.The first section is idyllic, but soon Sunday hikers reach their limits - the Lägerngrat is reserved for experienced hikers. Whether sporty or leisurely: Baden attracts with a charming old town and a jump into the Limmat. On to the moated castle in Brugg and up to the next chain of Jura hills. Steady ups and downs characterize your hiking days, which take you past castles, ruins and fortresses to Solothurn.

Tour character

For the Lägerngrat on the first day you need to be surefooted and head from hights. However, you can easily avoid the exposed passages. Otherwise, the tour is easy and good to walk. Challenging are only the last two long stages.
