In the heart of Switzerland, the medieval town of Gruyères offers a cultural and gastronomical journey.

The picturesque city of Gruyères lies at the foot of the Pre-Alps in the canton of Fribourg. Pedestrianised city, its cobblestones and its fountain offer an invitation for a gentle stroll. The medieval town gave its name to the region of La Gruyère and its tasty cheese, the Gruyère AOP.

A city of culture, four museums are available to visit: the Castle of Gruyères, which dominates the city, the museum and bar of the artist H.R. Giger, which presents the fantastic works of the creator of Alien, the Tibet Museum and La Maison du Gruyère.

A city of culinary delights, with many traditional and cosy restaurants serving the legendary specialities of the region: fondues, röstis, soup de chalet, macaroni d’alpage or the Bénichon menu.

Discover a city that has been preserved over the years, part of the network of the most beautiful villages in Switzerland. In 2021, Gruyères has been awarded the title of “Best Tourism Villages“.
