Help needed - please identify places from pictures [mostly near Neuchatel]

I was blessed enough to visit Switzerland twice (once in 2000 and once in 2002). It is absolutely my favorite country and, had I the money, I'd move there in a heartbeat. Lauterbrunnen is the most beautiful place I've had the opportunity to visit in my life. Anyhow.

Unfortunately, I lost a lot of info during a computer failure on the second trip, and I'm trying to compile a video of the photos/video I took during my travels, and I don't recall (too many great beers and wine, I suppose) all the places I visited. I'm wondering if I supplied a few pics if anyone could help me identify a few of these places.

If I'm in the wrong place or asking the wrong things, just let me know. Thanks (and/or apologies) in advance!

Re: Hi, all. I need some help! :) please identify places from pictures

Thanks for moving this thread to the correct area. Sorry about that.

Anyhow. I'd really appreciate any help anyone has to offer. I can link to pics or post em here and offer some suggestions as to where they might have been taken.

Help if you're inclined, please. Thanks in advance.

No worries and welcome to the forum. I think every visitor to this thread is eagerly waiting for the pictures to be linked and / or attached ( max. 5 per post, subject to limitations as in enclosed picture ).

Re: Hi, all. I need some help! :) please identify places from pictures

I dunno if anyone is eagerly awaiting, but I'll link them as opposed to posting em. Easier and saves digital space, I suppose.

So, a bit of background, both times abroad I was studying French at the University of Neuchatel and they had many, many "field trips" to places. It's been pretty easy to remember most, and that which I haven't I've been able to stumble upon using the Internet, but there are a few remaining that are just stumping me.

So, I would think all would be within bus driving distance of Neuchatel. If that helps. One trip we visited this church and coliseum. Beautiful stuff, but I'll be damned if I recall the town and names of the church and coliseum. I'll post the links below. Of course, if you choose to look through all the pics from my 2002 Switzerland trip, please remember I was almost 10 years younger and ridiculous in my postings.

Here's one of the coliseum:

Here's another:

And here's a few from the church:

I hope these help.

Man, making this video has been so nostalgic. But it's made me miss Switzerland so much. You truly have a great country!

Re: Help needed - please identify places from pictures [mostly near Neuchatel]

Oh, bless you, sir!

I think that may even narrow down the church pics to either Saint-Martin or Saint-Symphorian. Possibly, at least. I don't recall if we travelled between the two if they were in the same place.

Oh, how I wish I'd traveled now instead of then...the history and culture would be so much more interesting to me than just escaping the boring landscape and atmosphere of Salt Lake City.
