What travellers are saying
- If you are in Neuchatel, you can't miss this place. Here you find good restaurants with a view over the lake, promenade path, playgrounds, areas for a volley, etc. To me, it's the best part of the city, as I can refresh my mind after a long day and have a great walk there observing the transparent lake. Some people swim there even when it's cold!Written 29 September 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- We reached the summit in eight minutes. The speed was indicated on a special scoreboard and it was amazing all aroundWe made a nice tourist visit to the cable car. It was very interesting to see detailed information about its operation, as well as to observe historical photos.Written 11 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The Neuchatel Castle is now home to the Neuchatel cantonal legislative offices, the cantonal law courts (hold hearings here), and other administrative offices.
Between 1st April and 30th September, the castle is open for free guided tours. The guided tour takes you through several of the legislative and courtrooms, knights room, and offices. The inside of the castle was definitely worth seeing. There are some beautiful art pieces and historic Neuchatel Clocks on display within some of the rooms.Written 5 July 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The Jardin Botanique de Neuchatel offers a wide variety of plant life from several different regions, including the local species. The plants and trees are carefully labeled as is the garden itself. There is an indoor terrarium that offers a wide variety of plantlife as well. there is also a cafe on site.Written 24 February 2020
- This is the second time I´ve been to the roof-top Casino bar since it opened earlier this year. It´s a good place to meet, as its close to the lower end of the Funicular and difficult to miss, sitting in the middle of the Jardin Anglais park.
Service was a little slow, even though we were early, and it was difficult to miss us going up the stairs to the roof, as we walked past the waiting staff. But after five minutes we were forced to start jumping up and down and waving with our hands to attract their attention away from their conversation.
You can sit outside on the (waterproof) furniture and drink your cocktail and eat their finger food. A good place to start or end and evening, but it depends on who is joining you on the terrace. One thing is sure: You´ll remember paying for the experience: CHF 25 for a gin and tonic plus a Cosmopolitan ....Written 2 July 2013
- A stunning very well maintained church in the old town that one needs to visit. You also get beautiful views looking down over the town. Due to Covid and the number of groups we didn’t go inside but I’m sure would be worth a visit.Written 30 September 2020
- By the moment you enter the museum, the extraordinary architecture will completely blow your mind off, in the gallery you will find photographs, paintings and sculptures of both local and other artists.
If you’re an art person then it’s definitely worth the time to visit!Written 18 June 2019
- If you like to take a relaxing one to two hours watching birds, geology and magnificient nature photography, this is your thing. Entrance is about 8F and the museum is worth it. The building is very attractive and easy to reach on a street corner next to Old Town. The exhibits are rather specific though, so you won't get the Darwinistic journey to all life. However the geology section is well done and watching the animals will give you an idea of the fauna of this part of the world. Beware: there is nothing in english! The species names are in french, latin, german and italian. Quite entertaining though!Written 28 December 2019
- This walking area is well loved by young and old alike and is always busy with local people just enjoying the outdoors. We gathered supplies for lunch at a nearby market and enjoyed a picnic by the water. There are a few vendors mostly selling ice cream and drinks.Written 29 May 2018
- You'll see this apparent pier, though its end is more like an enclosed diving board as it juts, unsupported, out over the lake (though is surrounded by railings). A sign tells you its the sole survivor of a series of 2002 art installations created around the lake in Neuchatel. You'll see it from the Art Gallery if you walk down from the station. There's also an entertaining pair of statues on the promenade by la passerelle d'Utopie: a 19th century gentleman, doffing his hat at a very elegant 19th century lady he has encountered as he strolls along.Written 31 May 2019
- Neuchatel is an amazing city and the downtown looks really cool. There are plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants.
It is a must to spend some time in here.Written 14 October 2021
- This is a beautiful family place worth visiting. I like the vibes there on Saturdays, as usually a market is opening there and you can feel how vivid the city is.
You can enjoy your walk there even during a week, as the park is located right in the heart of Neuchâtel and you can't miss it.Written 29 September 2021
- Once you have visited here you will see some of the reality of the opening stage direction to "The Physicists". The villa has, however, been replaced by the centre building. The exhiition I visited highlighted the parallels between Duerrenmatt and Ionescu's art, in particular their iconoclasm. There is also a wealth of material and exhibits on Duerrenmatt himself.Written 17 July 2016
- The stadium has a really great design. If you’re looking for a god Nuzz is your man . The beers and the burgers are as good as it the nuzz wife. The supportes (like our friend Ratano) left me sur le cul :)Written 2 July 2021
