Interesting for prehistory lovers.

Interesting place if you like the prehistory. Those menhirs have a lot of story. They're located at a 10 minutes walk from the city center. You can go by foot or by bicycle... read more

It's quite nice to see. Nothing impressive though, I guess if you are really interested in the topic it might be really exciting.

Well not really, no huge crowds or weirdos dressed up as wizards, but it's marginally impressive albeit slightly smaller and a re-creation of what they thought was there 2000+ years ago. Free, easy to get to from the station and close to the lake/ other activities.

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.

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... More

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!
