Gruyères – Moléson

The Gruyère region, with its rolling green landscape and fine peaks, dominated by the picture-book little town of Gruyères, is the home of the world-famous Gruyère cheese. There is lots to do in this idyllic landscape: in the summer, hiking and biking, while in winter skiers can enjoy the largest skiing area in the Fribourg region, on the Moléson.

The Greyerzer (Gruyère) region, with its rolling green landscape and the peaks of the Fribourg Pre-Alps, is home to the world-famous Gruyère cheese. The picture-book little medieval town of Gruyères is perched atop a small hill.

Fribourg fondue: moitié-moitié

Half Gruyère cheese, half Vacherin – that’s how you make a Fribourg fondue, Switzerland's favourite. Exactly why this warm "cheese soup" became our national dish is unclear. Perhaps it is down to symbolism: just as the country comprises four languages and cultures, a fondue also brings together various elements that make a greater whole. A fondue is shared democratically, and enjoyed with (plenty of) drink, laughter and chat.
