Description

This 4km loop takes you through the streets of the village of Rougemont. Enjoy the charm of the century-old wooden chalets and the panoramic view from this family walk!

The starting point of your walk is the MOB station in Rougemont. Start your tour by walking along the main street of the village. On your left and right, the traditional wooden chalets follow one another. You can see on each of their facades when they were built. Do you know the origin of the Bible verses written just under the roof of these houses? When the construction of the cottage was finished, the owners and the carpenter wrote these texts to bless and protect the building. Continue up to the village fountain. In the past, the women of the village used to meet here to wash their clothes in this spring water. In summer, it is also the ideal place to fill your flask with fresh water! The path continues up through the village cottages to a small gravel road. From here you have a wonderful view of the Rübli, the village's landmark mountain. To the right, you can see the cabins that take skiers/walkers up to the top of the Videmanette. Below, the church bells echo throughout the village, it's time to get on your way! Follow the tarmac road to the hamlet of Le Crêt. On your way, you may come across herds of cows going down or up to the mountain pastures. The end of your walk is fast approaching. Before returning to the Rougemont station, stop at the Fleurette cheese. This is where they make and mature the delicious Tomme Fleurette. Don't hesitate to pack one in your backpack. The best for last, you are now in front of the majestic St-Nicolas de Rougemont church. It was built by the monks of Cluny and some villagers. Behind it, the castle of Rougemont is discreetly revealed.
