Signalization
The Jura Crest Trail links Zurich and Genève in a sweeping arc. Running through two language regions, the long trail has extensive views and offers discovery of a varied landscape. A respite from everyday hustle and bustle and mass tourism.
The Jura Crest Trail is considered the classic among national long-distance trails. Signalization of the route, starting at Zurich and ending just before Genève, began as early as 1905. It links two major Swiss towns and as the name suggests, leads over the Swiss Jura heights. This makes a sweeping arc towards the northwest, so those hiking this trail go a little round the bend – and over the language boundary!

The route has a particular appeal as it’s always easy to keep track of. Then there are the far-ranging views of the Alps, Black Forest and the Vosges. And en route: craggy cliffs and deep ravines, springs and lakes with no visible outlets, tranquil forests and extensive meadows, encounters with wild life or flora. But apart from similarities, regional differences are waiting to be discovered: different styles of houses and villages or cuisine with distinctive tastes. The many mountain restaurants and «Maiteries» are ideal for sampling local specialities.
