Lac de Rossinière - été - Rossinière - Pays-d'Enhaut Région

Walk | Tour du lac de Rossinière

Walk around the Lac de Rossinière between birch trees and pastures, before discovering the village of the painter Balthus and the exceptional architectural heritage!

From the start in the centre of the village, you will arrive at the Mâchecroute Bridge! The legend has it that this beast was long considered responsible for the floods in the region, giving its name to the bridge built in 1650, until man tamed it and built the dam in 1970. When crossing the bridge, take a good look, you might be able to see the beast...

Then walk along the lake to the birch forest. These trees are easily recognizable with their smooth, shiny white bark. They can grow because of the moist soil in this area. Small amphibians also like to live here, hidden between the grass and the trunks.

Go down the few steps and you will arrive at the famous Rossinière dam. A perfect spot to capture the moment with a photo of the lake and the village in the background.
