Fribourg region

The Fribourg region combines not only the two languages German and French, but also other contrasts such as cold mountains and warm lakes, chocolate and cheese, medieval towns and modern infrastructure. Whether on a culinary, cultural or natural level, the Fribourg region will not disappoint you. A highlight of any trip to this region is a visit to the pretty town of Gruyères with its charming 13th century castle.
