Rochefort is situated approximately 30 miles (48 kilometers) west of the national capital Bern, and 70 miles (113 kilometers) west of Lucerne.
It comes as no surprise that the area around Rochefort is so popular with travelers from all over the world; Western Switzerland is home to a treasure-trove of terrific sights and attractions. If your schedule allows it, head 6 miles (10 kilometers) where you'll find Neuchatel. Here you can check out the Theatre du Passage and Neuchatel Botanical Garden.
When it's time to explore beyond Rochefort, why not check out the nearest regional city. Lausanne lays 35 miles (56 kilometers) away and is home to attractions like CIG de Malley, University of Lausanne and International Olympic Committee. Ensure you don't rush back to Rochefort until you've spent a little time at Lausanne's Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Bois de Vaux Cemetery and International Institute for Management Development (IMD).
For a look into the spiritual life of Rochefort, why not head to the region's many churches.
No vacation is really complete without a little relaxation. Camping is one way to relax in this region and shore fishing is another. Visitors who prefer getting off the main tourist trail will enjoy the region's guided nature walks, culinary tours and city walking tours.
Everything must end sometime, but be rest assured, when you have to leave Western Switzerland, you'll be leaving with plenty of wonderful memories to remember your adventure.
