a nice busy square in the city centre. Always busy because the buses and trams stop there, but also very lively. Its name is due to the statue of Pury, a local rich benefactor. There are also many nice pubs with on the street terraces during the good weather.

This is the centre of Neuchatel and is like a bee hive. All buses and the tram stop here. There are shops, restaurants, take aways and places to sit and observe. This is where it all happens. You can wander up and down the streets and come back here. I like the place and would recommend spending a few hours... More

Pury Square features a statue of David de Pury (by David d'Angers). David de Pury was a generous benefactor for Neuchatel - he bequeathed his fortune to the town to be used for common good - Resulting in the construction of several buildings of today's cultural heritage.

Place Pury is smack in the middle of town, great meeting point, close to all cafes/restaurants and the hub of the local transportation system, close to all shops

Place Pury is a busy hub for Neuchatel. With all the buses you might not want to linger too long, but there is a nice Cafe on the corner, there are ATMs and at night if you want to dance with the locals head to Rodalphe.

Especially when weather is nice, the main square in downtown Neuchatel is a lovely and lively place. There are some wonderful bars and restaurants located in the area. There are some great public spaces in Europe, and their character seems to have been forgotten by North Amercian urban planners.

Don't go there, it's just the main bus station, nothing else.... Nothing to see... You'll get better time walking 5 min to the lake side or to the place des Halles where you can at least sight interesting architecture or relax....
