Jacob's Trail - Pilgrimage on Ancient Paths

The Swiss part of the Jacob's Trail offers highlights on the part of the trail that coincides with the language border. The stretch Schwarzenburg-Fribourg includes the over 600-year-old "Frybourgstrass," a path that leads through forests and over streams, past castle ruins, chapels and shrines.
