The Exodus of the Huguenots

The organisation is an international project dealing with the exodus of  French Huguenots after 1685.

It is a long-distance  hiking trail, that follows the path of Huguenots to Germany and French-speaking Switzerland 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 the shores of Lake Neuchâtel.

Another path, Le Sentier du Lac, leads to Neuchâtel and to Neuveville, l’itinéraire bernois.
