Gruyeres

(4.1/5 based on 2,200+ reviews for 7 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, museums
The small medieval town of Gruyères sits at the base of two foothill peaks with a saddle suspended between them. The quaint, pre-Alpine landscape is home to two medieval castles of national heritage significance. The enchanting town has preserved its medieval architecture, and agriculture among the scenic hills specializes in milk production and cattle breeding. A holiday to this rural village is not complete without a taste of the famous Gruyère cheese that originated here and to which the town lends its name. With our custom trip planner, Switzerland vacations can be built around trips to Gruyeres and other destinations in Switzerland.
