  • Fascinating and really informative!!! The Jaquet Droz Androids are a true work of MAGIC!!! The history of Neuchâtel is really Well presented! The room with the new art is a must!
  • It's a beautiful city museum. There are a range of beautiful collection. three great automaton, sword-helmet-armor, modern paintings, 19th century tables, Monet, Sisley, Courbet, Renoir paintings and artists such as something else. Building especially the second floor exit stairs are amazing. Art Nouveau style decoration alone is worth a visit. Museum entry is free. Compared to the size of a very high quality Museum of the city.

Where to stay in Neuchatel

A visit to the city of Neuchâtel is well-spent lakefront to take full advantage of the panoramic views. Here you'll find a handful of comfortable, moderately priced hotels. The majority of the accommodations are either downtown or close to the train station. In the downtown area visitors can appreciate the broad streets lined with neo-Romanesque sandstone buildings, while still within walking distance to the city's famed absinthe distilleries. Offerings for budget hostels and guesthouses can be slim. High-end five-star hotels and international chains can be found along the water's edge.
