Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Neuchatel Canton, Switzerland your home away from home

Sitting amid a host of mouth-watering sights, this tourist hotspot goes to show that there is more to Switzerland than cheese and watch making. Having said that, the timeless art of watch making is well rooted in the Neuchatel region. But what visitors come to this canton in the French-speaking section of Switzerland to see are the breathtaking views on the shores of Lake Neuchatel and other such attractions. The magnificent cool climate of the region also makes a host of activities possible. Villas with private pools and spectacular views are what most visitors to Neuchatel opt to spend their nights in.

Things to do on holiday to Neuchatel Canton, Switzerland

With the wealth of museums available in Neuchatel, visitors have no excuse for not leaving knowledgeable on Swiss history. The Musee d?Art et d?Histoire is of particular interest due to the works on display there. Among them are three mechanical figurines called Automates Jaquet-Droz which were crafted in the 18th century and are still in perfect working order today. They were made by a watchmaker, confirming the finesse of the Swiss at their craft. Apart from this museum visitors can also head to the MEN ethnography museum or Latenium, an archaeology museum. But the evidence of past civilizations is not confined to the museums, Neuchatel City is dotted with buildings showcasing the marvels of ancient architecture. Among them are the Maison des Halles which dates back to the 16th century and the Collegiale church which was constructed in 1185 and put into use almost a century later. The early gothic facade of the latter is truly something to behold. From the Prison Tower, visitors will be treated to splendid views over the town. A stroll down to the Old Town gives an even closer look at medieval architecture with over 140 centuries-old fountains.

To top up on the cultural experience, visitors should plan to attend the Fete des Vendages which is held every year as autumn begins. It commemorates the wine harvest. And while still on gastronomic matters, mention must be given to the excellent eateries in this part of the world. Unsurprisingly one of their most famous delicacies, the Fondue Meuchateloise, is heavily dependent on cheese. There are also a number of bars where excellent wine can be sampled.

Attractive area enhanced by a very high quality apartment

5 of 5
The apartment was excellent with plenty of space and a very wide range of facilities. The owner although some distance away very quickly, with the help of a neighbour, sorted out our internet and TV issues. The view was as shown in the photograph and the extensive garden a delight in which to sit or to have meals in - the weather was so good during our week we sat outside for breakfast and, when in, in the evening. The most appreciated feature of our week was, perhaps, the booklet of free entry tickets which also gave us free transport within the area. We used this extensively travelling into Neuchatel by tram, taking train train trips,and a boat trip across the lake. although the tourist tax was twenty one Swiss francs each for the week the free pass must have saved us something in the region of 200 francs. Hats off to the local authorities for allowing this concession and to the owners for arranging it in advance for us.
