We’d like to present

La Chaux-de-Fonds. The fourth-biggest city in West Switzerland, a sophisticated town of watchmakers and birthplace of the famous architect Le Corbusier. And it’s not without good reason that our home town was named a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 2009.
Your holiday location La Chaux-de-Fonds lies at 1,000 metres above sea level in the northern part of Neuenburg in Jura and what is known as the ‘Land of Three Lakes’ (Drei-Seen-Land or Pays des Trois-Lacs). For more than 100 years, this city was the world capital of the watchmaking industry. Even today, this legacy is apparent – the International Museum of Watches is located here, for example.

The chessboard-like city layout originates in the early 19th century, after a devastating fire nearly destroyed the entire city.

The architect Le Corbusier is probably the most famous resident of La Chaux-de-Fonds. The ‘Maison Blanche’ he built for his parents in 1912 is an architectural landmark of national significance. Today, the doors of the building are open to visitors, making it a popular sightseeing spot in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
‘The step I take out of the house is the first step on an adventure.’
But our home town has a lot to offer in other aspects than just culture: the natural areas surrounding the city invite you to get active. The peaks of Jura are a popular area for hiking, cycling and running in summer and winter alike.
