Friedrich Dürrenmatt liked to walk around his houses. These walks allowed him, he said, to clarify his ideas...

These walks allow visitors to discover tourist spots in and around the city of Neuchâtel, while at the same time establishing links with the artist's life and work, with the help of text extracts, reproductions of his paintings and some archive photographs.
