The House of Nature

The region of the Gorges de l’Areuse in the canton of Neuchâtel is a real paradise for green tourism. The Maison de la Nature Neuchâteloise (AMNN) aims to promote respect for nature and to develop structures that make it possible to visit this natural park, in particular, the Gorges de l’Areuse and the Creux du Van. The three buildings (Noctule, Morille and Rousseau House) managed by AMNN are located in the park. These buildings organise exhibitions and provide documentation and information. The Cotencher Caves and La Noctule in Champ-du-Moulin offer a multidisciplinary approach to heritage, nature and climate change. The fauna from before the last ice age, during the ice age and beyond to the present day are discussed in detail. The theme of archaeology is also part of the presentation. It is famous for the animal bones, prehistoric stone tools and the skeleton of a Neanderthal woman of 70 000 years ago who was discovered there — an exciting and beautiful area on the edge of Lake Neuchâtel.
