Take advantage of the spring show when the apricot trees are in full bloom.

Saxon, the Swiss apricot capital, offers a didactic walk through the village, its orchards, vineyards and its forest. The trail is dotted with information panels revealing all the secrets of the fruit. At the Saxon tower, take a break and appreciate not only the breathtaking view of the region but also the area with its 25 varieties of apricots available to walkers. The tour proposed here corresponds to the small loop of the Apricot Trail. During the walk, however, it is possible to join the big trail and extend your walk by a further hour.
