The beautiful spa town of Yverdon-les-Bains lies in a valley between the Jura Mountains, the Broye hills and the shores of Lake Neuchâtel. The natural sulphuric springs have made the area a popular destination since Roman times, when the first spa was built here, and today the nearby lake draws in water sports enthusiasts from around the world.
Hire a car in Yverdon and you'll be able to roam the marshes, forests and prairies of the Champ-Pittet nature reserve in the Grande Cariçaie wetlands, home to 1, plant and 1, animal species. Alternatively, you can explore the future at the 'House of Elsewhere', the first science fiction museum in Europe.
Explore the rich history of the region at the medieval Savoy Castle which dominates the picturesque old town, visit the Swiss Fashion Museum or take in an art exhibition at the impressive city hall. Hiring a car in Yverdon is the easiest way to get to the UNESCO world heritage site of Clendy, a prehistoric megalithic settlement, and the Celtic, Roman and medieval remains of Eburodunum.
You can also enjoy spectacular mountain biking in Sainte Croix and Les Rasses or, if you're feeling more indulgent, try almost 20 different types of Swiss chocolate at the 'Espace Chocolat'.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
