The Althuus stands in the little hamlet of Jerisberghof which is listed in the Swiss index of villages worthy of special protection. This veritable jewel on the language border between French-speaking and German-speaking Switzerland brings together rural architecture from both cultural domains and from several centuries.
The entire region offers keen sightseers, families, clubs and special interest groups a tempting choice of excursions. The Althuus is close to countless expanses of colourful vegetables (the Vegetable Trail), steep vineyards, a rich palette of fields and meadows, shady woods, sparkling lakes and streams as well as nature reserves that are ideal for walkers, naturalists or leisure visitors. Explore the vast “Grosses Moos”, with its ultra-rich soil so perfect for vegetables: stroll the gentle hills or take to the steep slopes of the Jura mountains. Whether you are hikers, cyclists, water sports enthusiasts, eco-freaks or amateur geologists, the region around the Althuus truly offers something for everyone.
