Autumn in the region of Fribourg has it all! Nature puts on a show and enchants us with crystal-clear light and a magnificent array of colours. Enjoy the view from Mont Vully, across vineyards shining yellow in the sun, and the deep blue Lake Murten to the snow-capped Bernese Alps. The dry reeds of the Grande Cariçaie look like a golden blanket that is about to cover Lake Neuchâtel.
In fact, the water everywhere begins to shine brightly, Lake Schiffenen near Fribourg displays thousands of colours and the Fribourg Pre-Alps are reflected in the Lake Schwarzsee and Lake Gruyère.
On the subject of the Alps: the cows return to the valley – lucky visitors experience their Alpine descent – and people celebrate the traditional Bénichon, a homage to the delicious specialities of the region as well.
The hiking and mountain bike trails between Schwarzsee, Jaun, Charmey, Gruyères and Moléson to Les Paccots remain open, as do many mountain restaurants along the way.
