With the enchanting Neuchatel Castle towering above the city, an Old Town Center housing 16th-century fountains and the stunning Lake Neuchatel, the city is straight from a fairytale. Neuchatel's history reaches back to the human remains found there dating back to 13,000 BC and exhibits numerous examples of the medieval architecture from across the centuries, so there's much to discover in this beautiful setting. The city's economy is rooted in its famed watch industry and other high-tech industries such as medical and micro-technology, machinery, and IT. English is widely spoken but knowledge of French is advisable for working expats and is essential for those hoping to work in education.
