Cycling: Round trip Fribourg

Chilly mountains in the south and warm lakes in the north

Fribourg is a «crazy» region, a topsy-turvy world. Chilly mountains in the south and warm lakes in the north. Furthermore two languages and three different holiday destinations within smallest space.

Heidi-feeling and modernity mixes at the foothills of the alps. For example in Gruyerès, where a medieval castle complex meets a futuristic museum of the Alien creator H.R. Giger or in Broc, where the Cailler chocolate factory with it´s widespreading smell is located. A must-see for every chocolate enthusiast.  

Itinerary

Thanks to more then 200 gothic facades from the 15. century it has maintained it´s medieval charm until today. Ever since the billingual city keeps the exchange of cultures alive.
