Exploring Switzerland and Discovering Neuchâtel

Switzerland is an amazing country to explore and this year because of Covid, instead of travelling abroad so much, I have been discovering different places all over Switzerland. One location which I really enjoyed visiting was the lakeside town of Neuchâtel. In just over 2 hours by car from Zurich (or only 1.5 hours by train!) you can be in centre of this beautiful town in the heart of the Jura Three Lakes region.

It was my first time in this historic town and there was so much to see and do.

There is a castle, a fabulous Art and History Museum where they are currently showing a great exhibition of the old posters of Suchard Chocolate – see photo above. There’s a beautiful lake, a fun Italian quarter (which even has street art painted on the road – see photo below) and an abundance of great restaurants and bars serving fabulous food.

Street Art To Be Found Everywhere in Neuchâtel

However, the one thing that really made a great impression on me was the ART – in particular the street art in Neuchâtel.

It seemed that everywhere I went there was street art on display – on the walls, on doors, on buildings – in fact everywhere. The interesting thing is that it is not all in one style – there are so many different types of street art to be seen and admired.

More Street Art In Nearby Le Locle

In fact you many be interested to know that there is even an urban art trail which you can go on in the town of Le Locle. Le Locle is just half an hour away from Neuchâtel by car, and a little longer by train. I didn’t have time on my visit but I will definitely put it on my list for next time. Apparently there are some great street paintings on the façades of many walls in Le Locle, with some fascinating works highlighting the local heritage of watchmaking, lace-making and other regional occupations.
