Exploring Gruyères, Home of the Famous Swiss Cheese

By John Reality, Cambodia, July 2012

No reviews, be the first!

Situated amid the green, pre-Alpine foothills around Fribourg, the medieval town and castle known as Gruyères is justly an enormously popular tourist attraction and cultural site. The sole means of public transportation in the town is a trackless train that circulates semi-regularly, so plan on doing a lot of walking. Happily, your ambulation will take you on a journey through more than eight centuries of living history, architecture and culture. Needless to say, the cheese on offer is pretty good as well (most notably at the La Maison du Gruyère cheese factory).
