Difficult (it's not all in one location) to find and a little underwhelming. But worth a visit if you have time and patience. These menhirs are not in yverdon as this page suggests. Get off at the first motorway stop after yverdon in direction Neuchâtel. Then drive on until the next village on the secondary road.
