Laufen, a small German-speaking town, refused to become part of the new canton of Jura in 1974 and 20 years later, having become an exclave of the canton of Bern, decided to join the neighbouring canton of Basel-Landschaft. Its old town is listed in the Swiss inventory of protected sites, as are more famous places such as Murten and Estavayer-le-Lac.
