"Freiburger Voralpenweg": Plaffeien-Schwarzsee
Discover the regional route n°78, the “Freiburger Voralpenweg”. The "Freiburger Voralpenweg" leads in five one-day stages from the medieval town of Fribourg past picturesque Schwarzsee, into the Gruyère region, then along the Gastlosen chain to verdant Pays d’Enhaut and down to the balloonists’ Mecca of Château-d’Oex.
After the high plateaux, a pleasant pre-Alpine trail leads alongside the River Sense via Zollhaus to the natural spectacle of the Schwarzsee: romantic lake, waterfall and grotto, dominated by the peaks of Kaiseregg, Chällihorn and Schwyberg.
