The hike goes from La Brévine–Lac des Taillères–La Citadelle–Boveresse to Môtiers.
The technically easy, approximately four-hour hike starts in La Brévine. At the summit of La Citadelle, a great view of the alps and the Jura opens up. History and fairytales await you on the other side of the valley. The trail leads along the Tilleul des Catholiques, a five hundred year old lime tree, in whose hollow trunk a statue of the Virgin Mary, a honeypot and a candle are hidden. In Môtiers, the green fairy awaits those who are interested, as this place is home to the absinthe spirit. A permanent exhibition in the historic absinthe dryer near Boveresse reveals all the secrets of the legendary drink.
