UNESCO World Heritage Site: With an architecture dominated by light and a traffic-friendly development concept, La Chaux-de-Fonds is the symbol of the strategic alliance between urban development and the watch industry.

The city was - like its neighboring town of Le Locle - designed by and for watchmakers. The town buildings provide evidence of the local craft and industrial history as well as of the close links between the watchmaking tradition and urban landscape.

A free brochure is available as you explore this world-renowned cultural environment.

A 15-minute film showing at the Espace de l’urbanisme horloger (Rue Jaquet-Droz 23) tells the full story.
