The Exodus of Huguenots

The organisation is an international project, which deals with the exodus of Huguenots after 1685 from France to Germany and Switzerland. Recognised by the Council of Europe as a European Cultural Route, this long-distance international hiking trail follows the historical flight path of Huguenots to Germany and French-speaking Switzerland at the end of the 17th century, after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes (1685). The route begins in Geneva, passing Coppet, Nyon, Morges, Romainmôtier, Yverdons-les-Bains and ends in Vaumarcus on Lake Neuchâtel. From there, another path, Le Sentier du Lac, leads to Neuchâtel and then to Neuveville, l’itinéraire bernois. Source and further information:
