Things to do in/near Sainte-Croix

We’re planning a trip to Switzerland in August, staying in Sainte-Croix for five days. Any ideas on what to do and where to go? Child-friendly is a must! Recommendations for day trips no more than 1-hour drive is much appreciated. We like vineyards, hiking, boating, eating, and my children LOVE trains. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Re: Things to do in/near Sainte-Croix

Why St. Croix out of all places? I lived there, it is fab. Swiss miniature (mini train park), butterfly museum Papillorama, then visit Neuchatel, Bern and Lausanne - all have great beaches and museums.

You'll have a blast. Just the train up from Yvd is amazing.

Re: Things to do in/near Sainte-Croix

Sainte-Croix is my second home - some spectacular walks to do - take a trip to the top of the Chasseron for spectacular views.

The Creux du Van although in Canton Neuchatel is very quick to get to from Ste-Croix going through Les Rasses and Bullet - it is 1400 metres wide and 150 metres deep - a real mini grand canyon.

Going from Ste-Croix through L'Auberson you can cross the border into France and visit Pontarlier which is a delightful town. Takes about 15minutes from Ste-Croix to Pontarlier.

visit www.sainte-croix.ch for some more ideas
