Meet the witches of La Neuveville.

“La Neuveville has a holiday feel to it and encourages you to take a walk. It was the theme path about witches that encouraged me to discover the mysteries of the town, the secrets of the plants, the scents, the trees, the rocks and the water. Although it is steep and a bit tough to begin with, walking among the vines, enjoying a wonderful view, discovering a hidden and bewitching waterfall are just some of the elements that make this a beautiful spectacle with a hint of mystery.”
