“Well arranged, and well explained”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

The menhirs of Yverdon are a great stop for anyone interested in prehistoric times and archeology. There are a ton of menhirs. They are not in the original location, as they were discovered when lake levels dropped and had to be moved to more stable terrain.

For the esoteric amongst you, you will enjoy the energies of the place. One of the menhirs looks very goddessy in an abstract way.

For the more pragmatic, they provide a great example of prehistoric menhirs.

They make a great picnic spot.

“A place of energy”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

Did some incredible Hartmann measurements there! Pity about the road nearby, but still very impressive, especially when you think these stones are 6000 years old!
