On the razorblade of a landscape

The Grand chemin royal

The 1798 fights at the mountain pass of la Croix

The Grand chemin royal : Montbovon, la Tine, Rossinière, Château-d’Oex, Rougemont

A historical itinerary which evokes the Grand chemin royal which traverses from one parade to another all the Pays-d’Enhaut of pre-Revolutionary France. It follows Charles-Victor de Bonstetten of Bern and a few other charaters. Stopping in various villages, it tells a few of the moments which created them: running along the Sarine, it speaks of the bridges joining them.

Françoise Ostermann-Henchoz : Decorator, puppeteer, former depute at the Grand Conseil of Vaud. She has worked for 12 years for the museum of the Vieux Pays-d’Enhaut at Château d’Oex, currently as keeper and exhibit commissioner.
