Gruyères in brief
For more than 800 years, the historic castle of Gruyères and its medieval town, which has been elected "the most beautiful village in western Switzerland", have shaped the region and attracted visitors in droves.
Every year, thousands of visitors rediscover the noise that shoes make in this traffic-free town. Inside the fortified castle, you'll find the treasures once owned by the former Counts of Gruyères. There is also the H.R. Giger Museum, dedicated to the creator of Alien. In the village of Pringy, you will find the cheese dairy La Maison du Gruyère. Why not try the local speciality: meringues covered with Gruyère double cream?
