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.

Neuchatel is a wonderful city especially the center of the Old Town with the fountain and iconic watch tower. The architecture reminded me a lot of Italy, Malta. I love the yellow tones. I am glad I chose to visit this city. The center was empty because it was a Sunday, everyone was by the lake.

This is the central shopping area of Neuchatel with a variety of shops and lots of pubs and restaurants. Bus stops are close by and it’s also very close to the lake shore front. It’s an area you just have to visit.

This is one of the central squares in Neuchatel, named for David de Pury, whose successful commercial activities in the 18th century (out of Lisbon with Africa, Europe, and North America) made him a fortune.
A good part of this wealth was donated to the city and created its great edifices and open spaces.
The "cancel culture" tried to remove his monument, the purported reasons being obvious. However, not in Switzerland!

This is a main square in Neuchatel. The buses all seem to stop here. There is a public washroom, although its free it can be a bit sketchy. There is a farmers market here 3 days a week in the summer. Basically its a central hub.

In switzerland if you want to experience a place which would not have the rush like metro city and would not be the mountains, then the best option will be Neuchatel. Another lake side city , but calm and peaceful. You can even roam around in the city till midnight. No crime, no rush, no traffic, everything is at its place. And place pury is the center of the city. You can get buses for all corners from placepury. You can have "COOP" multistore to get all kind of products and many more restaurants, even if the Indian ones.

honor of the benefactor David DE PURRY, the city of Neuchatel, gave its name to the main square of the city: Place Pury. In the center of this square is the statue of David DE PURRY. Yet this man has not lived much in Neuchatel. He was born there and lived until he was 17, and then returned briefly only once in 1755.
From this place you can stroll into many restaurants, the old city and many shops.

Place Pury is a very picturesque square in the middle of the old town of Neuchatel. In the Spring the Cafes and restaraunts start to bring the tables and chairs outside to enjoy the warm sunshine. It is a great place to sit, stop for a drink, or bite to eat and watch the world go by. There is a variety of restaurants to choose from and enjoy different cuisines. There is often a small food market in the square too. Once finished you can shop until your hearts content! Lovely place.

There are many choices of food in this area. You can sit and enjoy the old town while enjoying a coffee or Kebab! If you are looking for some unique shops, you will find them here. You'll also run in to some free wifi in this area!

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.
