Accompanied by your guide, you will discover the city of Neuchâtel, its history, its main monuments, its streets and the largest pedestrian zone in Switzerland. You will start your day by taking the funicular that will bring you to the top of the mountain overlooking the city. Then from the watchtower you can appreciate the view of the 3 lakes and the Alps. From there, a hike in the forest along paths without great difficulty will take you down to the city of Neuchâtel where a break will be welcome to eat your picnic or have a lunch in one of the many restaurants in the city.
