Watchmaking town planning (UNESCO)

Watchmaking town planning (UNESCO)

A world and a fascinating town to be discovered minute after minute. Don't miss the wonders of La Chaux-de-Fonds promoted to the UNESCO world heritage.
The history of watchmaking linked with the development and town planning is fascinating. The tour takes us back to the time when the flourishing clock-making industry of the Neuchâtel mountains made more than half of the world's production. As you walk along the straight streets, you can easily imagine the clock-makers behind their windows (south-facing to catch the light) and the swarming employees going up and down the streets carrying parts from one workshop to another. These tours are a good opportunity to get to know the anecdotes that shaped the metropolis with the centuries. A must !
