Guided tours, Castle of Neuchâtel

“When I was small, I thought the Château and the Collégiale were the same thing. They were so close, they seemed to be interlinked. Was it a church or a château? Most of all, it was the wonderful playground of my childhood! The years passed but the two emblematic monuments remain inseparable. So different, yet so complementary. Like the perfect couple of an age-old union which, despite the hazards of time, renovations and extensions, is more successful than ever. She, with her two slender towers, dark interior and cloisters, and He, imposing, with his walls constructed of our well-loved golden Hauterive stone, are well worth the trip. Centuries old, the ancient Novum Castellum has been rendered eternal in Neuchâtel”.
