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

Just in the middle of the town at the border of the old town. You can see the statue of De Pury. All the buses arrive there. The peddestrian zone start right from it. Across the street you reach the lake. Nice terrace for a drink. All people meet there.

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 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.
