  • The views overlooking the lake and the city of Neuchatel are well worth the countless steps you need to climb. The castle itself is just as beautiful and spectacular! Well worth a look!  more »
  • The Chateau is a beautiful building on the outside. The inside is used as office space so I was only able to see the interior courtyard.  more »
  • I visited the Chateau today, beautiful views and amazing structure, just wish I could have seen some of the inside!  more »

  • Take the tour, it shows you some behind the scenes information even though it's such a small place. In the weekend you can walk through all places, since during the week it's actually used as a government building.
  • It is so, so pretty! I was there while they were playing the organ. Magical!
  • A beautiful fairytale castle built above the old town. Came here on a day when it was snowing so it was a bit deserted but that only added to the magical atmosphere. Unfortunately the inside isn't so nice.
  • Nice castle, we visited outside only on a Sunday morning and was very empty.
  • It's pretty on the outside, but inside it's all offices. No tours half the year, from October through March.

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.
