A strategic position in the heart of Europe


Half way between the international airports of Geneva, Zurich and Basel, the State of Neuchâtel enjoys speedy access to the world’s key destinations. Over 570 flights operate each day from these airports, which are served by direct trains from Neuchâtel; as such Geneva is only 1h15 hours away, Basel 1h30 and Zurich 2 hours. The same time is required to reach these airports by car, thanks to an efficient road network.


Neuchâtel is at the crossroads of the three large European economies, notably Germany, France and Italy. Frankfurt is just 460 kilometres (285 miles) away, Paris 520 kilometres (323 miles) and Milan 390 kilometres (242 miles). With a particularly well-developed, modern and reliable rail network, Paris or Milan are just 4 hours from Neuchatel by train.



A business airport for companies


Thanks to the Eplatures airport in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Neuchâtel has its own business airport equipped for instrument flight rules (IFR) and offering uninterrupted customs services. In this way, private planes and helicopters can land in the heart of Neuchâtel’s economic zone and link up with the whole of Switzerland, including the intercontinental airports of Geneva and Zurich.



Easy commuting


Getting around on a daily basis is refreshingly hassle-free and easy, as the whole of the Neuchâtel region has an efficient transport infrastructure. Traffic jams, which are common in certain areas of Switzerland, are practically non-existent here. Getting to the office often only takes 10 or 20 minutes. In terms of leisures, some the best ski stations in the Swiss and French Alps are just less than 2 hours by car, as is the pretty town of Lucerne and the bustling international cities of Geneva and Zurich, all of which excellent for tourism activities and fine shopping.
