Many of Neuchatel’s most interesting sights can be found within easy reach of Hauterive, making it a smart choice as a place to base yourself during your visit. Two sights that should top every visitor’s to-do list is the wonderful Latenium and the iconic Neuchatel Botanical Garden. If you have time, don’t miss theatre du Passage and the St. Nicolas Cathedral.
To really understand Neuchatel, head to one of its museums and theaters. Take a guided tour, admire the architecture or simply enjoy the beautiful exhibits at the Museum of Natural History in Fribourg.
If you are into nature, visit the nearby green spaces. These are good spots to relax and unwind. Read a book or newspaper in one of the local parks and gardens, which include Botanical Garden in Fribourg.
Nearby Stade de Suisse Wankdorf, Bern is a great place to experience Neuchatel’s passion for soccer, and to see local heroes, the BSC Young Boys, in all their glory. On game days the area around the stadium becomes a sea of yellow and black, as soccer fans flock together to support their home-grown heroes.
Finding somewhere convenient to rest your head around the Hauterive area couldn’t be easier. The Mercure Plaza Biel, the Best Western Hôtel de la Rose, Fribourg and the Hotel des Arts are just three of the many great places to stay around here.
