Living in Neuchâtel

An outward-looking city, ideally situated between the lake that bears its name and the foothills of the Jura mountains, Neuchâtel has so much going for it, things that make this Cantonal capital, halfway between Geneva and Zurich, a dynamic and attractive city.

Thanks to its plethora of higher education establishments, it benefits from having a student population that comes from all over the world.

A thousand-year-old city with historic buildings that is the seat of the Cantonal government, Neuchâtel shares a remarkable legacy of institutions and cultural events with two other cities (La Chaux-de-Fonds and Le Locle).

The public transport network enables you to quickly access all the regions in the canton, its magnificent natural sites and other local places of interest.
