These 'toblerones' made of concrete were put in place during the war - Germany demanded that the Swiss put them on the French border as well. The walk can be challenging in places, both along side a stream, and across rugged land. But great on...More

Reference to the World War, this anti-tank structure is today a nice occasion to have a stroll / walk around nature
