Default Re: The Alps west of Austria - looking for small roads


After the sun downer yesterday evening on the balcony I had the choice of four different restaurants just around the corner.
The morning sun is as good as in the evening.









A nice breakfast and a look into the garden and then it is time to start.






Today I want to reach the Swiss Jura which is north of Lake Geneva, because next day at 6 pm Katie should rest on the trailer. So some km to do. I drove on a lot of interesting roads but not many pics today. In Annecy I changed to the motorway.

Ok, it's the last day. In the evening I have to be with the car in the Murg Tal in the northern part of the Black-Forest. I have to plan the tracks for finishing around 5 pm at the trailer in Lörrach.

Let's put as many small roads in as possible!




I'm in the Jura, a secondary mountain range which runs along the Swiss-French border roughly from Basel to south of Geneva. The south side of the range is called the balcony of the Jura, a name which comes true if the weather is fine.

Unfortunately I had no luck with the view. This guy in Sainte Croix for sure has sometimes a good view.



view into Switzerland



enough balconies in Sainte Croix



The modern building of Reuge the only company which still produce musical clocks - the last survivor of an old tradition.






It is really nice to drive here, a lot of roads, not much traffic. You change permanently between Switzerland and France.

In the middle of the forest the Swiss had still their tank traps - no problem for a KTM. Might be a problem with a Beemer .

I just googled this....this is BEWDIFUL! Had no idea they were still made.

Some choice roads to Loerrach by the looks of it. The Jura is the one area in Switzerland I've never been to...and it certainly looks worth a visit
