Neuchatel

Located on northwestern shore of Lake Neuchâtel west of Lucerne, the city of Neuchâtel is nestled in the Jura range of the Montagnes Neuchâteloises in wild and hilly terrain that is not quite as mountainous as the Alps, which lie to the south. Traces of a Magdalenian hunting camp have been uncovered here that date back to 13,000 BC, while other remains from the early Iron Age have also been found in the region, giving it a rich history and cultural heritage that stretches back across the millennia. Today, Neuchâtel is a renowned center for watchmaking and is also an important player in the technology sector. It is home to 32 Swiss Heritage Sites of National Significance, so it is a good idea to consider hiring a rental car in order to plan day trips throughout the region and take in all that it has to offer. From Paleolithic remains to the many historical sites found in the old city, Neuchâtel is sure to delight history and architecture buffs alike
