Neuenburg/Neuchâtel

Built out of yellow sandstone, Neuchâtel(or Neuenburg as German speakers call it) is located on the northern shore of Lake Neuchâtel and nestles against the Jura hills. The medieval centre of the town with its many cafes and restaurants, shops and numerous theatres and museums exudes French charm and is ideal for a gentle stroll
Neuchâtel (or Neuenburg) also has some interesting museums: the Dürrenmatt Centre, built by the Ticino star architect Mario Botta, is dedicated to the Swiss author Friedrich Dürrenmatt who lived in Neuchâtel for many years. And then there are the Jacquet-Droz automata from the 18th century at the Art History Museum. The "Laténium" archaeological park which enables visitors to go on a scientific journey through time from prehistoric times to today is also well worth a visit.

The watch and clock industry plays a major role in Neuchâtel. The town has an important research centre featuring an observatory which gives the official Swiss time down to the exact split second.

A panorama funicular transports its passengers up the Chaumont (1100 metres above sea level), Neuchâtel's 'house mountain'. Other rewarding excursion destinations include the Vue des Alpes pass crossing set in a hiker's paradise with stunning views, the Val de Tavers with its asphalt mines, walks and cycle rides along the lake and a trip to the Vine and Wine Museum at Boudry Castle. And last but not least, you might want to consider a cruise on board one of the pleasure boats operating on Lakes Neuchâtel, Biel and Murten.

Highlights

  • Old town - castle and collegiate church dating from the 12th century, Hôtel du Peyrou dating from the 18th century and Place des Halles.
  • Chaumont - Neuchâtel's 'house mountain' (1100 metres above sea level) with a wonderful all-round view of the Bernese Alps, Montblanc Massif and three Jura lakes.
  • Jacquet-Droz automata collection - selected examples of the world-famous watch and automata production of the 18th century at the Musée d'art et d'histoire (Art and History Museum) Neuchâtel.
  • Laténium Museum - 50'000 years of local history - modern presentation at the archaeological park and museum.
  • Cruising on Lake Neuchâtel - biggest lake located completely in Switzerland offering an opportunity to go on a three-lake-cruise.
