The Île d'Ogoz is an island in the Lake of Gruyère, located in the canton of Fribourg. It has a length of 130 metres and a width of about 70 metres. Its highest point is 688 metres above sea level or 11 metres above lake level (677 m). The distance from the shore is 160 metres. On the island are a ruined castle and a church.Before the completion of the Rossens Dam, it was a promontory overlooking the valley of the Sarine.

  • 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.
