Living history and varied museums

One-of-a-kind museums and historic monuments fascinate culture buffs as well as neophytes.

The region of Yverdon-les-Bains is a land of culture and tells a thousand and one tales. Starting with its own, in the beautiful abbey of Romainmôtier, the castle of Grandson on the shores of Lake Neuchâtel, its Roman mosaics in Orbe and in one of Switzerland's most ancient museums in the castle of Yverdon-les-Bains. On the more unusual side and unique in Europe is the Maison d’Ailleurs (House of Elsewhere), which tells the story of science-fiction and extraordinary journeys, while the crafts typical of this region are exhibited in Sainte-Croix and Vallorbe.
