Aigle is not only reputed for its exceptional terroir wine, but also for the water of its fountains. This gave rise to the idea to create a fountain walk to let visitors discover their abundance and charm on a 5.2 km path.
Swiss fountains are often genuine works of art as exemplified by the fountains in Aigle. The most representative twenty-seven of the forty existing fountains have been chosen for this walk.
Marked on the ground by small blue wavelets, the fountain walk guides visitors across Aigle via its castle (which houses the famous Vine, Wine and Label Museum created by the no less famous Guillon Brotherhood), via place du Marché, Hôtel de Ville and its picturesque streets.
This is also an ideal opportunity to discover the fabulous “lavoir du Croisat” (Croisat wash house) dating back to the 17th century. Visitors can still picture women kneeling down and washing their laundry. The itinerary can be downloaded from the Aigle website, thanks to GeoRando, a programme providing route details as well as GPS coordinates.
