VISION COPPET

FAMILY BIKE RIDES TO DISCOVER COPPET

In recent weeks a number of volunteers, led by Hugues Janssens, tested the planned outing by bicycle and on foot to the source of the Greny, the man-made stream, remarkably preserved, which has provided Coppet with water and energy since the 13th century. 

To participate to one of these wonderful outings, feel free to register, as from January, on the Vision-Coppet.ch web page.

SPRING 2023

Vision Coppet invites you as of Spring 2023 to a short outing along the Greny watercourse.

Dates will be fixed early in the new year, and information will be posted on the website www.visioncoppet.ch

Follow the course of the stream which as of the 13th century was the key source of water and power to Coppet. An historical outing along a remarkably well preserved piece of Coppet’s history.
