Yverdon-les-Bains, which was referred to as Ebredunum and Eburodunum throughout the Roman Era, is situated in the Jura-Nord vaudois district, and it’s a municipality. It is situated in the Vaud canton of Switzerland. It is where the seat of the district is based. The population, when the data was collected in 2012, was close to 28,500.
Yverdon is situated in the center of a natural setting created by the mountains of Jura, the Orbe plains, the hills of Broye, and Lake Neuchatel. It is the 2nd most important town in Vaud canton. It is well known for its springs, and it is a major center for tourism and commerce.
It was given the Wakker Prize in 2009 because of how it handled and managed the public areas that linked the old city with Lake Neuchatel.
The little town of Yverdon-les-Bains is nestled in between the Jura, Broye hills, and Lake Neuenburg. It is one of the famous spa resorts in the country. In the summertime, the town as well as the area around it are natural and water sports paradise.
The thermal spa of Yverdon-les-Bains merges the nice characteristics of the sulphur water and contemporary spa facilities, along with a 4-star hotel that is attached to the site. Because of its magnesium- and sulphur-rich sources, Yverdon has a long history as a thermal wellness and health spa for healing, and there are Roman ruins that attest to that. Medieval castles and primeval menhirs bear additional testimony to more than 6,000 years of history.
There is a nature preserve called the Grande Caricaie that stretches alongside the barely populated and developed southern edge of the lake. The area is the site of more than 1,000 plant and 10,000 animal species. From May through October, visitors have the chance to explore the nature area in the close vicinity of Yverdon. Trails across the praire, forest, and marsh landscape, as well as a bird-watching area let visitors have a wonderful nature experience.
Yverdon has a lot of cultural offerings as well. There are a couple of strange museums: The “house from Elsewhere”, which is the first sci-fi museum in Europe. There is also the Savoy Castle, which dates from the 1200s and dominates over the whole town, and it includes an exhibition that documents the history of the town and the whole area around it. The same building is the site of the Swiss Fashion Museum.
