The city center of La Chaux-de-Fonds, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a remarkable blend of urban planning and architectural brilliance. Designed and constructed in the 19th century by renowned architect Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris, famously known as Le Corbusier, the city center exhibits an outstanding example of the modern city’s integration with its natural surroundings.

Prominent landmarks include the Grand Temple, a neo-Gothic style church, the Theatre, and the neoclassical City Hall. Walking through the city center, visitors can experience the harmonious balance between the grid-like layout and the green spaces that embellish the urban landscape.

La Chaux-de-Fonds’ urban planning is distinguished by the incorporation of watchmaking workshops within residential buildings, emphasizing the city’s close connection to its horological heritage. The “Maison blanche” and “Maison blanche avec oriel” are iconic examples of this integration.
