asking advice from anyone in Neuchatel!

I am trying to meet up with my friend driving up from Nyon, and i will be coming by train from Luzern area, tomorrow.
would it be feasible for her to park at the station and we could meet and walk around the town from there?
I have tried looking on google maps, but it looks like a motorway tunnel sweeping by there - is it easy access to the parking?

or any other suggestions for easy meeting places? I will come rather more than halfway, as she has time restrictions, which is why we thought of Neuchatel.

Any helpful advice gratefully received!

Re: asking advice from anyone in Neuchatel!

There is an underground car-park just opposite the station. You can then take the funicular from inside the station down to the University site and walk to the Port for a drink and something to eat, or to the Place du Marché where there are plenty of cafés and restaus.

Or she could park at the Port unerground car-park (coming from Lausanne, it will be immediately after the big Post office building on the right, and the Port. She could then sit at the Port café. You could arrive to station and take the funicular to Uni and turn right on exit and follow the Jardin des Anglais, a nice walk along a park with lovely planted beds, then cross over to the Port and meet her there. Perhaps easier for her to find.

I was hoping that you would be around here, as you always seem to give helpful advice
That sounds just the sort of thing we would like to do, and hopefully it will work out perfectly
Thanks so much!

I would go for this option if I were you. The station car park is not as easy to drive to and is very ofen full during the day although it may be better during the holidays.

Bring your umbrellas with you it's pouring down at the moment.

Ok if that seems easier that is what we will do!

Thanks also for the umbrella tip - i was just about to check the weather, but so much better having the update from local eyes! Maybe i will wear proper shoes too then, not just flip flops!

Thanks!
