La Gruyere

The predominantly French-speaking district of La Gruyère is perhaps best known for its cheese so well-loved around the world. Dotted with small towns, including Gruyères, home of this famous Swiss cheese and a spectacular castle, the area offers culinary, cultural, and natural attractions. The capital Bulle features interesting museums, while the countryside offers year-round outdoor adventures. If you visit La Gruyère, save room for a fondue of Gruyère and Vacherin cheeses, as well as the chocolates from the local chocolaterie.

Where to stay in La Gruyere

Along the cobblestone streets of medieval Gruyères, you'll find a number of very expensive hotels, all featuring the picturesque facades and impressive geranium displays that make the town so charming. If you're willing to travel a bit further for your world-renowned cheese, look to the downtown core of Bulle, just west of Gruyères, which is more diverse in its accommodations. Here you'll find a selection of more modestly priced hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses. Alternatively, on the outskirts of town, you can often find apartments for rent.
