Fribourg and Neuchâtel Feature


Top Reasons to Go

Stir the melting pot: Fondue famously originated in the Neuchâtel area—try the two-cheese fondue neuchâteloise that honors the region's fabulous Gruyère and Emmental cheeses or opt for fondue fribourgeoise, a delicious Vacherin Fribourgeois delight.

Switzerland's largest lake: Lac Neuchâtel is a great place for a boat trip, to try out wakeboarding, or to savor the fine fish served on its shores.

You say Schloss: And I say Château. In either language, this area has some of Switzerland's most impressive castles, from Grandson to Gruyères.

Homegrown talent: Whether it's the clockwork extravaganzas of Tinguely or the disturbing alien-like creations of Giger, these two sculptors are true knockouts.

Gorgeous Gruyères: Step into a postcard in this perfect specimen of a medieval stronghold, its single main street cozy within the ramparts.
