If you're interested in culture and history, this a region to consider visiting. The pretty old town center of Basel offers lots of museums and monuments, and there is a Roman theatre and museum in Augst.
There's lots of beautiful scenery in the Jura mountains and around Lake Biel, Lake Neuchâtel and Lake Murten. It's not the Alps, but it is unique in its own way.
Between Basel and Neuchatel are the northern Jura mountains. This relatively undiscovered region of pine forests, lush pastures and deep rocky valleys is also the centre of the Swiss watchmaking industry. Visit the International Clock Museum in La Chaux-de-Fonds. The whole area is well known for its superb cross-country skiing, the main towns being Saignelegier, and St-Ursanne and Porrentruy which both have well preserved medieval centres. Delemont is on the northern fringe of the mountains and French is spoken here. As well as cross country skiing, the Jura offers a vast area for walking, biking and horse riding.
