  • It is almost a joke that the 'Maison de l'Absinthe', opened in 2014, is housed in Môtiers old courthouse. After all absinthe was a forbidden product in Switzerland from 1910 until 2005, but it is...

  • Visited after the famous "creux du van" hike! Got to know a lot about Absinthe: why was it banned, how the ban was removed, and why the regulations are important. Some specifics: 1. Super friendly "english speaking" staff 2. The museum is just "wow" 3. The best part: Absinthe tasting (more than worth the price according to Swiss standards) after the museum visit. I would recommend going for 3 different Absinthe varieties (10 ml) instead of 1 (30 ml), which is slightly expensive (7 chf vs 5 chf), but completely worth it! A must visit if you are in Neuchatel or Noiraigue!
  • Great museum on the history of absinthe! We enjoyed lunch there and, of course, enjoyed the absinthe tasting!
