NEUCHATEL (or to be precise the City of Neuchatel) is a medieval University city located in the heart of the Swiss watch making region. It nestles between the Lake of Neuchatel and the steep wooded hills behind which then become the Jura mountains. It enjoys a slow French cafe life style, has a market twice a week in the centre of the town where locals shop and often then stay on for morning coffee or a lazy lunch. If you want to slow down from a frenetic lifestyle elsewhere, this is the place to do it !

MAP – You will find the City and Canton of Neuchatel in the North West of Switzerland and although it is not a large City it has excellent road, rail and airline connections. Travel is rather easy especially considering its relatively remote location away from the bustle of say Zurich or Geneva.

Come and join us soon on a watch tour. Time’s ticking away!
