Neuchâtel, Switzerland - map

The only hotel in Europe on the water built on stilts, the Palafitte enjoys an exceptional setting. To put one foot into this unique and unusual establishment is to dive into a cocooning and relaxing environment. This is a complete and instant change of scenery. The architecture has been carefully designed to enhance the breathtaking surrounding view from any point in the room!

The hotel was constructed as part of the National Expo 2002 and has 38 pavilions on the lake and its shore.

Each of the pavilions has an individual bedroom, a bathroom with movable partitions that allow a view onto the lake from the bath tub, a separate toilet, an office corner and a large terrace with only the neighboring Alps to block the horizon. Direct access to the lake through a small ladder from their private terrace.
