Cluny routes: walk in the footsteps of Cluniacs
It is now easy to walk from one Cluniac site to another thanks to the project : 800 kilometres of pedestrian routes link Cluniac sites in France and Switzerland. There are already four designated footpath circuits.
Plans are in place to extend the routes across Europe from the east to the west and from the south to the north which should attract serious hikers as well as Sunday strollers.
SwitzerlandThe Cluniac route in Switzerland covers eleven stages, each with a Cluniac focus. For each stage there is a detailed leaflet with visitor and historical information. Each leaflet also gives an internet link to a detailed map of the particular stage and a further link to the complete route map in Switzerland.
