  • Really great this crossing by boat. Then apéritif and fondue on this exceptional site. Kudos to society which preserves this heritage.

  • 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.

  • Go in the spring, when the lake level is low enough to reach it by foot. There is a small chapel and the ruins of the castle to visit... the kids love. (1 hour return walk) Otherwise, during the summer, since the rock by renting a canoe... refreshing.
