From the June 11th, 2022, the boat "d'Grandfey", a proud 12-seater boat powered by electric-solar energy, will offer a pleasure trip from Schiffenen to the city of Fribourg (Neigles) and back.

The city of Fribourg also has a lake, let's face it!

During a  trip of about 1 hour and 30 minutes, you can admire the breathtaking scenery ot the artificial lake of Schiffenen, created in 1963 by the construction of the dam of the same name.

In addition to the wonders that nature will show you, you will also learn more about the heritage along the shore (dam, castles, hermitages, bridges), while you take a unique and relaxing walk to the rhythm of the water.
