  • Spontaneously we made a detour to Lake de Gruyère. Since the weather on this day was slightly better than the day before, there were very many people there. The Lake had little water, so you could run to the island. The island is small and family friendly. Some there have carried it a picnic. For the parking of cars, a fee was drafted by the Parkieranweiser of each by Fr. 5.
