“Sometimes tourists find some excellent spots to start from to visit a town. This is one such!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

1844. Recent as far as many old Neuchâtel families are concerned, this central square was a delta of the river Seyon before the course of the river was changed and the land became accessible. This square has become the nerve center of the town, where busses and trolley-cars start for all over town and even the nearby towns. It is here a person can get ticket for the transport system which includes bus, trolley, and the funiculars that climb the mountain out of the valley by the lake. Major banks are also located here, and the road between the square and the lake goes to the main post office where the tourist agency is located (2 minutes on foot as this part of town (the center is strictly pedestrian) is better seen on foot.

“Nice architecture.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2011

I agree with the other reviewer this might not seem like an attraction but it is worth seeing. Right down by the lake it gives you a great architectural view of old town. I was there mid afternoon and most everything closed. Gave me a chance to wander up different streets from Place Pury and photograph. I am looking forward to coming back on a warm, sunny day and sit out in this square with a nice glass of wine!

“Not really an "attraction"”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2010

Place Pury is the square downtown where all the busses stop. It is very useful from that perspective and it's a nice little square, but I think calling it an attraction is a stretch.

It has a statue of M. Pury but it's just a statue.

Neuchatel has a very nice downtown with lots of cute stores and fountains and walking by the lake on a clear day is wonderful. Place Pury is your gateway to all of this, not an attraction in and of itself.
