Hotel Palafitte
Neuchâtel, Switzerland
Uninterrupted sea views • Scenic mountain views • Perfect for proposals
Hotel Palafitte is a luxury hotel in Neuchâtel, on the shores of Lake Neuchâtel. By combining innovative architecture and avant-garde technology, the hotel offers outstanding facilities and impeccable service from an incomparable lakeside setting.
Thanks to its innovative construction on piles in the lake, this five star hotel is the only one in Europe to be built directly over the water.

The hotel’s wonderful location allows guests to experience breath-taking views of the lake and the Alps from a truly unique perspective.

The luxurious accommodation at Hotel Palafitte comprises 38 luxury pavilions, with 24 built directly on the lake.

Spacious and filled with light, each pavilion offers every modern amenity to complement tasteful décor and magnificent views from private terraces.

While you are a resident at this gracious luxury hotel, you will be thoroughly treated by the hospitality on offer.

The restaurant La Table de Palafitte offers inventive, refined cuisine based on local specialities and served in sophisticated surroundings, while Le Bar is the ideal venue for a warming nightcap or an aperitif in front of the fireplace.

In summer, La Terrasse welcomes guests to enjoy their lunch accompanied by one of the finest views in Switzerland.

During your stay, there is plenty to discover in the Neuchâtel region. Beautiful scenery is only the start, with history, culture, watchmaking and vineyards just some of the many delights available for tourists.

Surrounded as it is by lake and mountain, the hotel is also ideally placed to offer a wide range of sports such as golf, swimming, sailing and skiing, while it’s easy to reach Bern, Lausanne and Geneva if you need the amenities of a larger city.
