The church is being renovated in two parts and the most interesting monument inside is currently not on view. If you are in Neuchatel, walk around in the grounds, the pleasant cloister and have a quick look inside as it is pleasant on a sunny...More

The walk up hill can be challenging but the architecture along the way is beautiful and worthy of pictures (and a chance to catch your breath!). The inside of the church is dark but the view of the city below is nice. Don’t miss the...More

The Church is very close to the Chateau. Built in 12th Century and dedicated to the virgin Mother mary. Unfortunately it is under renovation. This process will last for 5 years. However you can benefit from the stunning views of Neuchatel from the top all...More

I only went up to see this church because my daughter said that the views were great. I wasn't expecting to find such an interesting church. I believe some of it is currently being renovated because some of the church is cut off by chip...More

Make the effort to walk up and enjoy the views. Maybe a 10 Min walk up the hill from Place Pury. There is a nice coffee shop up there too

It's under renovation and as of now you won't get near the tomb. So I was disappointed. But you can visit during your old town exploration of the adjacent Chateau.

I visited the church a couple of times during my weeks stay in Neuchatel. The roof was my favorite part of the building! Beautiful tile work. There is not much to see inside. There was construction going on and I could only enter the main...More

The outside of the church is probably more worthy of viewing than the inside, which we found relatively plain, but with some interesting mosaics. Without a car access is probably only by foot up a reasonable climb.

It is well worth the walk (or drive) up the cobbled street to see the Collegiale. A lovely original undisturbed church.
