Sitting in the Jura Mountains at an altitude of 1000m, La Chaux-de-Fonds is only a few kilometers south of the French border. It's the 3rd largest city located completely in Romandie, that is the French-speaking part of the country with a population of around the 38,965 mark. This area was first inhabited about 10,000 years ago and it is first mentioned in 1350 as "la Chaz de Fonz". Founded in 1656 it has a long history of watch making and it is the most important center for watch making in the area, aptly named "Watch Valley". La Chaux-de-Fonds plus its' sister city of Le Locle have jointly been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2009. This is a city that it will matter if you don't run on time and the coworking spaces do stick to their opening hours.
There is a definite transition from the old to the new sections of the city, due to the fact that the easternmost section of the city was the only part that survived a raging fire in 1794. If you meander around the old section you will have to negotiate narrow winding lanes that merge in the city's town square where all the fun happens. La Chaux-de-Fonds' economy is entrenched in the minute micromechanical industry. The town is a mish mash of residential housing and workshops reflecting the needs of the local watch-making culture that is still very much alive today.
Coworking in La Chaux-de-Fonds will give you the opportunity to hang out with likeminded souls in this eclectic town of ticking clocks.
