Join the top of the tower of the cathedral and discover not only the beautiful panorama but also the artistic information boards.

Attention: the cathedral tower will be closed on Tuesday 3 May and Thursday 26 May from 10 am to 1 pm.

The top of the St. Nicolas cathedral has 10 panels created by the artist fribourgeois Frédéric Aeby.
Instead of being limited to mere geographical and historical explanations, the panorama wants to add a layer of information on local habits and customs of the Fribourg peculiarities. The artist Frédéric Aeby tried to capture the Fribourg soul with humor and poetry.

The project was realized with the participation of Fribourg Tourism, the Parish and Chapter St. Nicholas and the State of Fribourg.

The tower of the Cathedral is open daily between the 1st of March to the 30 of November, so do not hesitate to ascent to the tower using the 365 steps to reach the top! After the effort you will be rewarded by the magnificent view of the Pre-Alps!

The tickets for the entrance to the cathedral tower are sold at the Marchands Merciers, the information point next to the cathedral.
Entrance to the tower is from the outside on the left side of the main entrance.
Last entrance 30 minutes before closing time.
Opening hours are subject to change in case of religious ceremonies.
