After the high plateaux, a pleasant pre-Alpine trail leads alongside the River Sense via Zollhaus to the natural spectacle of the Schwarzsee: romantic lake, waterfall and grotto, dominated by the peaks of Kaiseregg, Chällihorn and Schwyberg.
Schwarzsee – Jaun
Easy hike from the peaceful Schwarzsee lake over over the primeval landscape of the Brecca Schlund (gorge) up to the Euschelspass. On the descent to Jaun: ruins of historic Bellegarde Castle with panorama panels and superb views deep into Gruyère country
Entertaining ascent to the Stillwasser forest. The hike around the Gastlosen starts here. This offers variety in terms of geology and flora, which the hiker rarely finds in the foothills of the Alps. The view into the Bernese and Valais Alps with its 4000m peaks in the background is magnificent.
From Canton Fribourg into Canton Vaud, from Châlet du Régiment to Château-d’Oex. In the «balloonists’ Mecca» everything focuses on the hot-air balloon. «Espace Ballon» with activities for all ages as well as permanent and temporary exhibitions.
The first stages are easy. From Jaun it becomes more alpine and also more demanding in terms of physical condition. You must be sure-footed for the Gastlosen Tour and in good shape for the hike to Château-d'Oex
