Rossinière – Lac du Vernex – La Tine

The trail leaves the village center by way of the main road. Then, a smaller road leads to the right bank of Vernex Lake. Cross the lake via the dam and meet back up with the historic route on the left bank. Relatively steep-sided and shady, this bank has largely been left untouched due to the lack of sunshine. Arriving in La Tine (near the train station), the route forks right and crosses the Sarine over a remarkable, double arch, stone bridge dating from 1785. Postal stagecoaches carrying mail followed this route from 1840. The route then climbs to Village Devant.

 

Highlights

Balthus Chapel

Located at the heart of Rossinière, Balthus Chapel is a space dedicated to the memory of the artist. A rich exhibition invites connoisseurs and novices alike on a journey into the universe of one of the 20th century’s most important figurative painters.

 

La Tine Bridge

La Tine Bridge was built in 1785. Its twin arches over the Sarine connect local hamlets to the chemin royal (royal path) that Leurs Excellences de Berne (the excellencies of Bern) had built in 1748. Today, the bridge is located in the main artery of the valley.
