Switzerland - Fribourg, Neuchatel & Jura (Chapter)
This is the Fribourg, Neuchâtel & Jura chapter from Lonely Planet’s Switzerland guidebook.
This gentle corner in the west remains a ‘secret’. From the evocative medieval cantonal capitals of Fribourg and Neuchâtel to the mysterious green hills and thick dark Jura forests, it proffers a wealth of sights and scapes off the tourist track.
