Fribourg enthuses all who are keen to discover an exceptional city nestled in a superb landscape. The distinctive structure of the historic Old Town with its steep alleys, with its bridges and fountains quickly charms city visitors and is testimony to a rich and varied history. Artists such as Jean Tinguely, Niki de Saint Phalle and Bernard Luginbühl practised their calling and left their mark here.

Music festivals, concerts and museums offer all that culture lovers could possibly desire. Fribourg has for centuries also been a popular resting place for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago.

Nature lovers and sports enthusiasts will find innumerable beautiful forest paths and cycle routes as well as bathing opportunities in the immediate vicinity. Fribourg is an excellent starting base for fascinating excursions to Avenches and Gruyère, to the Freibourg Alps as well as the three lakes within the Morat-Neuchâtel-Bienne region.
