In this private trip from Zurich to the cities of Fribourg and Gruyeres, you will experience beautiful landmarks and the traditional delicacies of Switzerland.

The first visit is to the captivating city of Fribourg. Located in the western part of Switzerland, Fribourg is known for its rich history and well-preserved medieval architecture.

As you wander through the narrow streets of Fribourg, you will be enchanted by the picturesque scenery and the unique blend of French and German influences. The city’s old town, situated on a rocky hillside, offers breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

During your time in Fribourg, you will visit the iconic St. Nicholas Cathedral, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture that dominates the city’s skyline. Inside, you’ll find impressive stained glass windows and ornate chapels, offering a glimpse into the city’s religious heritage.

Another highlight of Fribourg is the charming wooden bridges that cross the Sarine River. The most famous of these bridges is the Pont de Saint-Jean, a symbol of the city. Take a leisurely stroll across the bridge and soak in the tranquil ambiance of the river flowing beneath you.

The picturesque town of Gruyères has preserved its authenticity from the Middle Ages. It is considered to be one of the best places in Switzerland to enjoy a day trip with family and friends and enjoy the finest cheese and chocolate.

Here the cheese and chocolate factories of La Maison du Gruyère and La Maison Cailler are located. La Maison du Gruyère will uncover the secrets about the locally made cheese. Divulge the mystery of the finest products that can only be found in Switzerland by taking this tour.

It is time to explore Swiss chocolate. Maison Cailler - the Swiss chocolate factory will take you on an informative journey through the history and originality of Swiss chocolate. Witness and touch the raw materials of chocolate making. After the museum tour, get rewarded with unlimited chocolate tasting. The taste and the smell are indescribable.
