The mountain ridge between Lake Neuchâtel and Val de Ruz valley is Neuchâtel’s home mountain, a great vantage point, hotel mountain, story-telling mountain narrating the history of the earth, and great place for Jura hikes.
Already the journey with a nostalgic cog railway and open carriages is an adventure in itself - and the higher you climb, the better the breath-taking views of the mountains that open up all around you.
