Ecoquartier, Neuchâtel

"Having always been enthusiastic about ecological construction methods, my wife and I had been wanting to visit Ecoparc, one of the first ecological neighborhoods in French-speaking Switzerland. We arrived by train and quickly followed our guide out of the automobile chaos around the train station to enter the pedestrian zone where the ecological neighborhood is situated. What a change of ambiance! It was very interesting to see the different buildings and learn about the ecological construction methods applied. After passing through the "passerelle du millénaire", we continued our informative visit and were taken to some examples of modern constructions and refurbishments which were all realized according to principles of ecological sustainability, witness to the fact that Neuchâtel is moving in the right direction."
