The crematorium, stained-glass windows and staircases are to be discovered.

On this guided tour, you'll discover magnificent Art Nouveau decorations that blend harmoniously into the city's buildings: stairwells, stained glass windows, balconies and the famous crematorium, a gem of the 'Pine Tree' style. The discovery of an Art Nouveau apartment is one of the highlights of the visit. You will be charmed by this successful combination of ornamentation that gives the watchmakers' city its unique appearance.
