Your work of art in soft sandstone

The location fits perfectly: the studio of Le Bûcher is situated in the heart of the old town of Fribourg. Nimble hands work on soft sandstone and create works of art - just like in the Middle Ages. Whoever would like to, can give the tradition of sculpting a try, and can learn how to use a hammer and a chisel in one of the courses that are offered regularly. And he can get an inkling of what it must have taken to build the cathedral of St. Nicholas.

Crossbow Workshop

Sepp Steiner, better known to many in the region as Wilhelm Tell, knowledgeably introduces you to his crossbow workshop and proudly presents the art of constructing crossbows with the very same tools used to make the historic crossbows of days long gone.
