"Fribourg en diagonale": Fribourg-Morat
Discover the regional route n°81, the “Fribourg en diagonale”. We follow the tracks of the GFM, the former Fribourg Railway Company, from the pre-Alpine region of the Greyerzerland to the Drei-Seen-Land (Three-lakes region) and through the town of Fribourg, whilst discovering the three principle tourist towns of the canton: Gruyères, Fribourg and Murten.
Start in beautifully-conserved, historic Fribourg; off the major traffic routes, through peaceful cultured landscape to the lake shore. Sightseeing attractions along the way: Greng (18th century castle) and a little further on, the obelisk commemorating the Battle of Murten.
