River Sarine

Between the “La Tine” gorge and the rocky shores of Lake Schiffenen flows the River Sarine. Its course is dotted with vestiges of the region’s eventful history: the covered bridge in Lessoc, the cistercian abbey in Hauterive, and the medieval Old Town of Fribourg, to name but a few. The river may constitute a natural boundary, separating the French- and German-speaking communities, but for the people of Fribourg, the Sarine is the tie that binds.

The “Sense”

In a study, operated by the WWF, it was said that the river “Sense” is the most beautiful river in Europe. After the guidelines of this study, this river is one of the last natural rivers in the Alps. The “Sense” originates in Zollhaus in the canton of Fribourg, where the “warm Sense” – coming from Schwarzsee (1046 m) – and the “cold Sense” coming from Gantrisch (2175 m) – merge. Thereafter, it snakes for about 35 km down to the water mouth of the “Saane” in Laupen. According to specialists, the intercept from Zollhaus is fabulous.

Jogne gorges

Between Broc and Charmey, a forest path follows the course of the River Jogne up to the dam at Montsalvens.
