Clock-making Museum, Le Locle, Château des Monts

"A beautiful building in a magnificent setting, clear blue skies, bright sunshine, the luscious green of our Neuchâtel mountains, a day blessed by the gods to come and admire the most beautiful treasures of clock-making, the cradle of our centuries old industry. The rooms take us on a journey back in time, admiring ever more beautiful pieces. A journey for the eyes and the mind as we think of all these people from the past who created wonders for the world of today. An essential detour not to be missed….."

Jennifer and Jonathan
