When the patron saint of Freiburg comes to visit the Broye district.

Every year, the beginning of December rhymes with the tradition of St. Nicholas. The must-see visit to the villages and towns of the Broye is a popular celebration for young and old alike. Distribution of sweets, procession, songs, activities and speeches rhythm the day dedicated to the famous bearded man. Beware of his inseparable friend bogeymen... He risks giving nasty looks to children who are not behaving well!
