Sainte-Croix

Perched on a terrace of the Jura, Sainte-Croix and its tourist resort Les Rasses offer a unique view of the Lake Geneva Region and the Alps.

Sainte-Croix focuses on an industrial activity: artistic mechanics, particularly automata and music boxes, whose masterpieces are exhibited at the International Centre for Artistic Mechanics (CIMA) in Sainte-Croix or at the Musée Baud for mechanical instruments in l'Auberson. The specialist, enthusiastic craftsmen who shape wood and metal are nicknamed dream makers.

Above the wintry fog layer, Les Rasses offers 8 ski lifts at an altitude of 1,150 and 1,580 metres: an ideal skiing area for beginners to improve their technique. From Les Rasses to Creux du Van, 65 km of cross-country and snowshoeing slopes are prepared every day.

Sainte-Croix is located 20 minutes from Yverdon-les-Bains.
