For many this is a new and fascinating experience and one which was not usually available to visitors.
Usually all year except for three to four weeks in July and August when some factories are mandated to shut down. This can often be overcome using our local knowledge, although at least two days notice is required.
Visits are for two to four people and are conducted in English and French. German, Chinese etc can be provided at extra cost.
WHAT’S NICE TO KNOW
The City of La Chaux-de-Fonds is world famous for its watch making and the clock museum.
It’s also well known for the Swiss architect known as “Le Corbusier” who designed some unique buildings in the City.
