La Cure Transportation
La Cure is at the end of the line on the narrow-gauge railway Nyon - St. Cergue - La Cure. The journey takes less than one hour. The train slowly climbs up on the Jura plateau from Nyon which lies on the shore of Lake Geneva. On a clear day you get some fantastic views on the alps.
On this line there are some request stops which don't have a ticket machine at the station. You can then buy the ticket from the conductor. But if you get on at a station which has a ticket counter or a ticket machine and you want to buy the ticket on the train, then you will have to pay a surcharge.
A return full fare ticket from Nyon costs around CHF 28.00.Related to:

The Jura region where La Cure is situated is famous for hiking in summer and cross-country skiing in winter. The Jura is a mountain plateau just above 1000m with various valleys.
The hiking signs are to be found just by the railway station and on the wall of the railway station there is a map with the cross-country skiing routes.Related to:

La Cure Favorites
Favorite thing: La Cure railway station is not just the railway station but it also houses the post office. But more importantly it also houses free clean public toilets.
Just outside the building you find hiking signs and it's only a few steps to cross the border into France where you find a small shop/café which accepts both currencies, although the exchange rate for the Swiss Franc isn't very favourable.
