Lac de Neuchatel in the Swiss Alps is a lovely Alpine glacier fed lake with stunning mountain views in the background. We toured all countries that border on to the Alps and despite how many lakes and mountains we saw each one was still breathtaking.

Simply a stunning place to view against an awesome mountain back drop. A December visit is beautiful but need to return in the summer months to take advantage of the many sightseeing boat trips.

A fantastic lake with lots of beaches dotted around and promenades along the lake front . With the Alps in the background the view is breathtaking . Nice views and good place to swim/ relax on a summer sunny day .

One of the best places ever for summer sunsets. Take a boat ride, picnic, and swim. One of Switzerland's larger lakes.

Everybody love walking, party, eating, making BBQ near the Lake and swimming in the lake : tourists, students, families, couple.... No cars, no noise just water, mountains and within two minutes walking you can be downtown or in Neuchatel old town.

Will be driving or training from Geneva next Wednesday afternoon to arrive in Chur/Arosa by Thursday evening (for business) with my 13 year old daughter. We have one full day and overnight and want to spend it in a French speaking canton doing something unique. Neuchatel sounds perfect. Creux-du-Van looks amazing. But since we will have several days of enjoying the mountains when we get to Arosa, we wanted to instead use the 24 hours to do a lakeside experience where we can speak French with the locals, enjoy shops and outdoor cafes, and maybe visit a castle. If the weather is nice, would love to take a bike ride for a couple of hours and explore paths along the lake to take in the views. Question: To find a hotel in a setting that offers these opportunities, and which loans/rents bikes, should we plan to stay in the city of Neuchatel itself, or should we look at some of other villages along the lake or Murtensee lake? All of the TA reviews I find here in this section are for the "Lac de Neuchatel", but I don't see which town/city. Thanks for suggestions! Jamie
