The Creux du Van is a natural rocky cirque approximately 1,400 metres wide and 150 metres deep, on the north side of Le Soliat. It is located in the Val de Travers district, in the Swiss canton of Neuchâtel. A very well known, amphitheatre-shaped natural attraction of the area, it is located at the heart of a nature reservation area of 15.5 km².
The rocky amphitheatre of the Creux du Van is undoubtedly one of the scenic highlights of the whole sweep of the Jura. 160 m high and about two kilometres long, the chain of rocks forms the shape of a horseshoe. But the fantastic views of the Creux du Van have to be earned!
