Visit of the city of Gruyères and its castle

Take a private guided tour of Gruyeres Castle and explore the myths and legends held within the castle.  Located in the Fribourg region which borders the French and German-speaking part of Switzerland this guided tour takes you through eight centuries of history and legends.

First up, observe the exceptional panoramic views from the site (you’ll see splendid hills, mountains and farmlands) before even entering the gates of this medieval fortress.
Inside, your private guide reveals the rich history and tells you about the great deeds (and misdeeds) of the characters who lived here. You’ll explore the medieval kitchen and the Romantic era halls, and peer into the chambers of bailiffs and knights. The castle is not only a historical monument, it is also a holder of true artistic heritage – a testament to the centuries of history it has seen - decorations  and paintings are hung in many rooms, as treasures from another time.

You will cross the remparts of this medieval Swiss castle, leave the premises and extend your experience to explore the old city nearby. Hear the story of the valiant Claremboz and Bras de Fer (who resisted the first assault of the Bernese with nearly no external help) stroll along the Belluard and admire the amazing house of the famous jester Chalamala.
