I enjoyed my visit to this historical castle which ultimately housed the King of Prussia. Functions now as a civic building and court. Interesting architecture and design. Guided visits start under the arch. Times are noted so wait for the guide to show up.

The views overlooking the lake and the city of Neuchatel are well worth the countless steps you need to climb. The castle itself is just as beautiful and spectacular! Well worth a look!

The Chateau is a beautiful building on the outside. The inside is used as office space so I was only able to see the interior courtyard.

The guided tour gives a good overview of the canton's history as reflected in the chateau. Much of the chateau has been converted to serve the needs of the cantonal government but there are still some of the original features left inside.

The castle is transformed in a couthouse, parliament for the local governement, and offices. As such there is very little authentic things left. Just visit the outside and you have seen it all.

The chateau de Neuchâtel on top of a down-town hill is a place to see for anybody interested in history. From here you have an extraordinary view on the old town and can easily catch its development over centuries. Neuchâtel was a Prussian dominium (traces...More
