Parc naturel régional Gruyère Pays-d'Enhaut - Nesting in the Fribourg Pre-alps, the medieval city of Gruyères is the ideal jump off point for hikers. The castle dominates a green hill at the foot of the Moléson and at the junction of the Jogne and Intyamon Valleys. Its walls swim in legends, its garden and its rich collections bare witness to a life and culture that has continuously inhabited the region for the last eight centuries. Continuing its tradition as an artistic crossroads, the castle plays host to art exhibits and big cultural meetings at the heart of a grandiose natural panorama.
