The Exodus of Huguenots
6 December 2019
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: www.via-huguenots-vd.ch).
