Remark 3:

Antifern:
One of the places most difficult to identify.
In different sources several locations are mentioned:

Yverdon-les-Bains:
Seems very unlikely. Because it is far beyond the route from Orbe to Pontarlier.

Entre-les-Fourgs:
Veronica Ortenberg calls the hamlet Entre-les-Fourgs the most likely candidate (page 240).


In my opinion, this choice does not seem logical either.
The route from Orbe to Jougne also seems possible by going around the ridge on which Entre-les-Fourgs is located.
Both distances are about the same, but the route via Entre-les-Fourgs, adds about 350 altimeters.
This doesn't seem like a logical choice to me.


Height profile of both possibilities.
