Unique and picturesque, there are plenty of shops and restaurants in Place Pury. Right on the edge of the lake means there's harbour views, and the public transport is regular and reliable.

This is the square where everyone meets. There are some good restaurants and some old shops and banks here and it is where the trolley buses leave from to all corners of Neuchatel

It is the center of the village, where we can arrange a meeting, take the most of transports. It is nothing special. Could be more careful with cultural and architectural sights.

It is the heart of Neuchatel! Old buildings, shops, restaurants, cafes and the transportation station (bus and tram)...It takes around 2 hours to walk through it, have a nice lunch and have a peak on the lake! :)

central location where you can find most of the buses and trams. Have some historical backgrounds, with nice old buildings and shops. But the place is quite crowded, which i think make it becomes average. So, nothing really special.

This place is the central place of the city. From there you have acces to the bus and tram station. They drive you wherever you need. Nice buiĺdings and a lot of people hanging around when the weather is nice

Trolley bus hub - fine tearooms nearby - local market - cosy creperie & good restaurants nearby - access to banks, small shops and major stores - just across from tram to Boudry, and the Esplanade -

Visited with family, who now call Neuchatel home! Truly is a magical city to visit. The climb to the Cathedral requires a certain level of fitness as you cannot drive there, lots of steps. Couple of tourist/souvenir shops wouldn't take Mastercard, some card called the poste card or Swiss francs.... wasn't expecting that!! The Swiss are not big on customer... More
