Don't miss the opportunity to experience an unforgettable day in the Bernese Jura.
Departure from the visitors center Chez Camille Bloch in Courtelary. Come and experience a magical moment at the origin of the Ragusa and Torino brands. Located in the beautiful Chasseral region and easily accessible by road and rail, the Chocolaterie promises a unique and authentic experience that will awaken all your senses. Much more than a chocolate museum, CHEZ Camille Bloch takes you on a journey of flavors and discoveries in which you yourself are the actor.
Then, on the way to the Chasseral Pass. A stop at the métairie des Plânes is necessary for lunch. It is ideally located at the top of the Bugnenets-Savagnières ski area, passing through Les Pontins. It allows you to taste the tradition and the regional know-how through the local products. The menu is seasonal and composed exclusively of fresh products. The specialities are notably the fondue, the ham, and the spätzli "Plânes".
The day continues with a panoramic view. Symbolized by its telecommunication antenna, visible far and wide and planted like a lighthouse on the fourth highest peak in the Jura, the Chasseral offers a real spectacle in itself. The view of the three lakes (Biel / Neuchâtel / Morat) and the Swiss plateau is unique.
Finally, we descend the other side of the pass in the direction of La Neuveville. Walking through the cobbled streets of the old town is a real pleasure. You will discover colorful houses with a thousand and one details to observe: a steel dragon on a roof, the local coat of arms on the huge oak door of the Tour de Rive, an open-air stream in the main street and even grapes drawn on a facade that remind us of the importance of vines for this medieval city. Flower stores, restaurants and small boutiques bring this dreamy setting to life. A one hour walk will allow you to discover this very picturesque medieval town.
