Karstlandschaft Silberen

The rocky karst landscape of Silberen is unique in Switzerland as it includes the largest eroded limestone area in the country.

Shingle Roofs

Fine wooden shingles called “tavillons”, arranged in typical patterns, cover the rooftops of Taveyanne. While the tradition has become a rarity, you increasingly see buildings decorated with them in the Fribourg and Vaud Alps – but rarely in such concentration as in this little hamlet above Gryon.

The Fascinating Seleger Moor Park

The Seleger Moor Park is home to Switzerland's largest collection of rhododendrons and azaleas.
