Fribourg and Neuchatel Sights

Old Town

  • Building/Architectural Site

Fodor's Review

The architecture of the Old Town presents a full range of French styles. Along Rue des Moulins are two perfect specimens of the Louis XIII period, and—at its opposite end—a fine Louis XIV house anchors the Place des Halles (market square), also notable for its turreted 16th-century Maison des Halles. The Old Town has several fine patrician houses, such as the magnificent Hôtel DuPeyrou, home of the friend, protector, and publisher of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, who studied

botany in the nearby Val-de-Travers. Most of the Old Town is a pedestrian-only zone, though public buses do rumble through. You can stroll as far as Marin-Epagnier (east side) and Vaumarcus (west side).
