About Neuchâtel, Switzerland

Toilets and showers on-the-spot, 

Large car park around the club

The town of Neuchatel is located on the northwestern shore of the Lake of Neuchâtel in the northwest of Switzerland. Lake Neuchatel with its 218.3 km² is the largest lake entirely in Switzerland.

Since tunnels under the City of Neuchâtel take the exit "NEUCHÂTEL MALADIERE"

There are five types of wind in Neuchatel:

  • The "Wind", coming from west-southwest, linked to the passage of Atlantic disturbances (warm and wet)
  • The "North wind" (La Bise), coming from east-northeast, often linked to high pressures creating "continental" currents from the north. This is usually a dry and strong wind - sometimes violent, and usually lasts for several days
  • The "Foehn", coming from the South, is a warm wind which crosses the Alps, triggering a dry spell in the Suisse Romande (French speaking part of Switzerland) while causing heavy rainfalls South of the Alps
  • The "Day Breeze", during heat waves, is a light local thermal wind that can be felt on the lakeside. It comes from the middle of the lake and runs perpendicular to the mountains during the day
  • The "joran", is a local thermal current - becoming sometimes very violent at the end of the day – that appears usually during heat waves. A Very erratic wind running close to the ground with gusts of wind. It lasts usually from 1h30 to 2h30 (starting around 6 to 7PM) with a force ranging from 3 to 6 on the Beaufort scale.
