The Chasseral Route travels from La Neuveville and Le Landeron situated on Lake Biel through the Chasseral regional park to the mountain of the same name. Enjoy the ride through beautiful scenery and amazing views of Lake Biel.
The Chasseral Route takes you from La Neuveville through the Chasseral nature park to Nods (between April and October to the Chasseral Hôtel stop). The park is best explored on foot, on horseback, or by mountain bike. You can taste regional delicacies, such as Tête de Moine cheese, Chasselas wine, or Treberwurst, a steamed pork sausage, on the “route for connoisseurs and gourmands”.
Take the Witch Path to explore the medieval town of La Neuveville and Schlossberg Castle (PostBs stop La Neuveville, Post Office). A museum in the center of the historic old town is dedicated to Le Landeron’s history (PostBus stop Le Landeron, Railway Station). Le Landeron is home to Switzerland’s largest annual flea and antique market. On Plateau de Diesse, you will find wonderful hiking trails, such as the wooden sculpture trail and a botanical educational path (PostBus stop Lamboing, Village).
The region is ideal for winter hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. A ski lift in Nods takes those who prefer downhill skiing and sledding up to Chasseral (PostBus stop Nods, School).
The area is dominated by Chasseral mountain offering magnificent panoramic views from its crest (PostBus stop Chasseral, Hotel). Take a stroll along the adventure path to learn about flora and fauna, geology, landscape, and traditions in the Chasseral region. The ridge hike to Chaumont, Neuchâtel’s own mountain, is highly recommended. Hang gliders and mountain bikers find optimal conditions for their passion.
