Situated at an altitude of 1000 metres, nestled in lovely natural surroundings, Rougemont will enchant you with its architectural heritage. Here, wonderful chalets are lined up one after the other, each with its ornamentation a shining example of the local craftsmanship. These wooden houses, some of which are over 400 years old, are a true source of pride for the locals and will delight you with their carvings, engravings, floral ornaments, and inscriptions.
The 16th century castle and the 11th century Romanesque church rise majestically at the entrance to the village. Built by the monks of Cluny Abbey in Burgundy, both are classified as important cultural monuments. No less gorgeous, yet with an inviting level of comfort, the famous Hotel de Rougemont awaits you in the upper part of the village.
Sport plays an important role in Rougemont all year round. The La Videmanette mountain station is the ideal starting point for long hikes in summer and for long, sunny downhill runs in winter!
Culture and arts and crafts are an essential part of village life. An educational tour offers a fun way to learn more about Louis Saugy, the pioneer of silhouette art. Meanwhile, the local church hosts selected classical concerts of the highest quality.
Thanks to all this, the village of Rougemont has joined The most beautiful Villages in Switzerland association in early 2017.
