The topography of the region of Fribourg is a gift for visitors and locals who love outdoor pursuits and nature. Aquaphiles are attracted to the idyllic Lake Murten and Lake Neuchâtel region, with its many beaches and accessible shorelines. Culture-loving hikers will find surprising ways to discover the capital Fribourg and its surroundings. And the views of the Fribourg Pre-Alps, with their austere natural beauty, delight walkers, hikers as well as cyclists and even climbers on the Via Ferrata. Hikers think they are in paradise: the official network of hiking trails covers a good 1,800 kilometres. Themed trails even tempt non-hikers and the ‘Grand Tour des Vanils’ guarantees several days of long-distance hiking. The network of cycling routes in the region of Fribourg comprises three national, nine regional and four local routes, while the signposted route around Lake Murten is popular with the public. Panorama Bike Route No. 2 is a showcase of the best that the Fribourg Pre-Alps have to offer.
