Unique and picturesque, there are plenty of shops and restaurants in Place Pury. Right on the edge of the lake means there's harbour views, and the public transport is regular and reliable.

It is the center of the village, where we can arrange a meeting, take the most of transports. It is nothing special. Could be more careful with cultural and architectural sights.

It is the heart of Neuchatel! Old buildings, shops, restaurants, cafes and the transportation station (bus and tram)...It takes around 2 hours to walk through it, have a nice lunch and have a peak on the lake! :)

central location where you can find most of the buses and trams. Have some historical backgrounds, with nice old buildings and shops. But the place is quite crowded, which i think make it becomes average. So, nothing really special.
