Our hotel at the Swiss border
invites everyone to travel
Situated close to the Swiss border and around forty kilometres from the German border, our hotel is the ideal holiday base from which to organise a few trips to these two beautiful countries. Along the banks of the Rhine, on the German side, the Trois Pays (Three Countries) museum offers a view of the entire region of Alsace, the German territory of Baden and Northwestern Switzerland. It highlights the common traits that connect those living in this border region and tells their history.
Be sure to stop in Basel on your way home from the museum. This pretty town will surprise you with its modernity and its rich cultural heritage. Visit one of the town's 40 museums, but don't forget to take time out to visit the cathedral with its superb terrace known as the "Pfalz", the Mittlere Brücke, a historic bridge constructed in 1226, the port that opens onto the Rhine and the Tinguely fountain.
In the Swiss Jura, the town of Delémont is another beautiful destination. This old town is particularly interesting because of its numerous historical structures: the entrance gates, the Prince-Bishops' Castle, the church of St. Marcel, the town hall, etc. Délemont also hosts a great many cultural and artistic events throughout the year. If you are looking for strong sensations, come and try the new electric indoor karting track on 2 floors in Bassecourt.
The little medieval city of Saint-Ursanne along the banks of the Doubs, dubbed the "Pearl of the Jura", is another charming destination, with a glorious history that lives on in ancient remnants such as the Collégiale (collegiate church) and its cloister, dating from the 12th century.
In the west of Porrentruy, the caves of Réclère present a natural spectacle that is no less impressive. Extending over more than a kilometre, the caves contain an array of beautiful stalagmites and stalactites, some of which are over 10 metres long. Finally, those who love to play can head to the Casino Barrière Courrendlin in the evening. The casino offers 119 slot machines and 5 gaming tables to help you hit the jackpot.
