A city built by and for the watchmaking industry, inscribed in the world heritage list of the UNESCO

A city unlike any other: laid out like a chequerboard 1,000 meters above sea level, it was built by – and for – watchmakers. Guided by an enthusiastic expert, visitors can unlock the secrets of the utterly unique urban development of La Chaux-de-Fonds, a registered UNESCO World Heritage site.
