Hôtel de Ville, Le Locle

"It was by chance that I discovered a quite special building on the webcam of Le Locle. Just out of curiosity, I decided to go and have a look. The beautiful building is nothing other but the Hôtel de Ville, the town hall, built with limestone from the Jura. At the entrance, a brochure tells me that different architectural styles are combined in perfect harmony: neo-renaissance, Heimatstil, and art nouveau. I go in, and after handing in my ID card, the kind secretary lets me have the key to three halls: the wedding hall, the communal council hall, and the general council hall. Situated right in the centre of Le Locle, the Hôtel de Ville and its gardens add a charming and colourful touch to the old town."


Three halls at the Hôtel de Ville are open to the public.

  • Wedding hall: ground floor
  • Communal council hall: 1st floor
  • General council hall: 2nd floor

At the office for promotion and culture, a key to the three halls is given to visitors who hand in an ID card.
