Location of Vue des Alpes

Vue des Alpes (el. 1282 m.) is a high mountain pass in the Jura Mountains in the canton of Neuchâtel.

It connects La Chaux-de-Fonds and Neuchâtel. The pass road has a maximum grade of 10 percent.

A road tunnel for the motorway has greatly reduced the traffic over the pass.

As implied by its name, the pass provides a panoramic view of the Swiss Alps on a clear day.
