The Jura Arc

The towns of Neuchâtel, Delémont, St-Imier, La Chaux-de-Fonds and Le Locle all have their own specific assets, for example close to the lake or the mountains. They offer a very pleasant living and study environment, as well as, a rich and varied social life.

When you move to a new canton or a new commune, you must register with the residents’ registration office.
