The town of Neuchâtel

A thousand-year-old town with a special charm 

Neuchâtel first captivates you with its castle and collegiate church, which sit proudly on a hill. The winding alleyways with their elegant buildings made of Hauterive stone, the special yellow limestone that makes the whole town glow, are another attraction. All of this makes for an irresistible invitation to explore the city at a leisurely walking pace, especially since it has the largest pedestrian zone in Switzerland.

Don't visit Neuchâtel without enjoying its superb lakeside location. The view extends to the Alps looming in the distance as you wander along Quai Ostervald, at the edge of the crystal-clear water or aboard the steamer "Neuchâtel." The Jeunes-Rives will delight you with its bathing and water sports facilities, while the harbour beckons with lively cafés and restaurants in summer.

Archaeology, Friedrich Dürrenmatt, the Jaquet-Droz automata, ethnology and original nature exhibitions – the city's five museums are impressively diverse. The numerous festivals and events keep the city centre buzzing all summer long. 

If you want to discover the city on your own, the best way is to take the self-guided tour "Neuchâtel à la Belle-Époque."
