Besides Berlin, Potsdam, Munich, Cologne and Dresden, we have the pleasure to welcome you on the new tourist information website dedicated to the lovely town of Neuchâtel in Switzerland.

Neuchâtel certainly does not rank among the top Swiss tourist hotspots, like Geneva, Zurich or Lucerne. Still, Neuchâtel is a region of astonishing beauty, with numerous attractive cultural and natural sites. Moreover, it offers variety and excellent tourist facilities. We have chosen to include this town with only 32,000 inhabitants in our information platform for two reasons. First of all, it has been our intention, ever since the launch of LatLon-Europe’s first website, not to restrict ourselves to presenting well-known major destinations. So, we also introduce smaller cities which are not less interesting and deserve more attention, as they all offer the opportunity to spend a perfect holiday. Secondly, the owner of the website, Pascal Jeanrenaud, is Neuchâtel born and bred – and convinced that his hometown and its magnificent surroundings are a real find for tourists. As Pascal has come to appreciate the charms of Neuchâtel even more since he left to live in Berlin, he now wants you to discover them.

LatLon-Europe introduces you to Neuchâtel, in all LATitude an LONGitude, from the town’s monuments, sights and museums, to its history and to hotels, restaurants and guided tours, providing all the practical information you need to make your holiday a success.

Sights and monuments of Neuchâtel

For example: The Hôtel DuPeyrou
The palace-like Hôtel DuPeyrou gives an example of Prussian influence on Neuchâtel history. Erected from 1764 to 1771 for Pierre-Alexandre DuPeyrou, a friend of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the splendorous private residence is a proof of its owner’s fortune. Rousseau sought and was given refuge in Neuchâtel, then under the rule of Frederick the Great of Prussia whom he was friends with. Read more...

History of the Town and Canton of Neuchâtel

The history of Neuchâtel begins under the Second Kingdom of Burgundy which stretched from the banks of the Mediterranean Sea up to Basel. The first mention of a “novum castellum” – a new castle – dates from 1011, in the reign of Rudolf III (993-1032). The name obviously refers to the recent character of the foundation and to the construction of a castle, erected on a hilltop overlooking the plain and the lake, probably at the site of the Prisons Tower.
