The Gorges of the Jogne: actually open

From Broc to Châtel-sur-Montsalvens, the Jogne gorges will enchant you with their wild, unusully beautiful scenery.

The Chemin du Gruyère is full of surprises: the wild, romantic Lac de Montsalvens, the spectacular Jaun-Schlucht (gorge) and the famous Gruyères Castle.

Itinerary

The charming mountain village of Charmey offers numerous attractions: the Gruyère spas, many chapels, the «Musée du Pays et Val de Charmey» and La Valsainte, the last Carthusian monastery in Switzerland. The Alpine cheese dairy on the scenic mountain, Vounetz (1627m), reached by aerial cableway, still makes Le Gruyère AOP cheese in the traditional way.

The most spectacular part of the hike begins shortly after Charmey, at Lac de Montsalvens. The route leads via wooden bridges and rock galleries through the wild gorge of the Jaunbach. Limestone rock walls and glacial potholes accompany you along the way. A small adventurous excursion for the whole family. Old «Notre-Dame des Marches» pilgrimage church from 1636 in Broc.

The route continues over the «Le Pont qui branle» wooden bridge to Gruyères, home of the famous Gruyère AOP cheese. A visit to the old town and its famous castle becomes a stroll through eight centuries of architecture, history and culture. For example, discover the treasures of the former Counts of Gruyères. The beauty of Himalayan art can be admired in the Tibet Museum, where you can also step into the world of fantastic art by HR Giger.
