Come and discover Rue!
The town of Rue invites you to explore its mediaeval streets, historic monuments and lush greenery: its past and its present.
Located in the canton of Fribourg between the Alps and Jura, Rue is at the crossroads of Romont, Oron and Moudon and is part of the district of Glâne: the land of glass and stained glass windows!
The municipality is now made up of four towns: Blessens, Gillarens, Promasens and Rue.
The first reference to a castle dates back to the 12th century and the town was founded in the 13th century. The town of Rue has had up to twelve annual fairs, five bars, numerous shops, a casino, a hospital, and it was even the administrative centre of its district until 1848.
The smallest town in Europe has many attractions to show to you: its magnificent heritage, beautiful natural surroundings, meeting places, cultural sites and gastronomic delights, as well as a range of different events.
A short walk within the walls, an extended ramble at the foot of the hill, or a longer hike will give you the opportunity to discover all the charming features of the region of Rue.
