The Kilometer O Trail

Map
Infos Association „Friends of km 0“ This association aims to take stock of and uncover vestiges found along the first kilometers of the southern part of the western frontline which had been occupied by the French, German, and Swiss soldiers during the 1st World War. Le Largin Between 1914 and 1918, the whole Swiss army crossed the district of Porrentruy at one point while changing shifts, taking up position at the almost mythical site of Le Largin. While stationed on this stretch of Swiss land between the French and German borders, the troups witnessed the war from close by. Fortress Les Forges Located in the Gorges of Pichoux, this is the region’s largest fortress open to visitors. Fortresses in the ravine of Soyhières The main fortress blocks the ravine below the chapel of Vorbourg (railway line and road Delémont-Laufen). Good to know Important: tours must be booked in advance. Opportunity to enjoy a fondue or aperitif in the fortresses. The Jurassic Museum for Art and History in Delémont and the Museum de l’Hôtel-Dieu in Porrentruy present exhibitions on the First World War.
