Day 2 – Fribourg
If you want to experience pre-winter magic, you can take part in a guided city tour at dusk. Or you can go on a journey back in time: “Frÿburg 1606” is much more than an audio guide, this augmented reality application lets you immerse yourself in the history of Freiburg’s Old Town. For museum fans, Fribourg is a true paradise. A visit to the Espace Jean Tinguely – Niki de Saint Phalle and the Museum of Art and History should not be missing. Railway fans will adore the miniature world of the Chemins de Fer du Kaeserberg Museum, which is a 610m2 treasure, to be explored in detail. For a divine meal, enjoy the sumptuous decor of the restaurant L’Aigle Noir, its magnificent panoramic windows and its environmentally friendly regional cuisine. The newly renovated Café des Arcades offers a unique view of the city’s landmark, the St. Nicholas Cathedral. And there is still so much left to discover. Why not extend your stay at the Hotel Le Sauvage?
Day 3 – Romont
Once upon a time, there was the smallest city in Europe… the town of Rue was founded in the 13th century. Go back in time via the intramural promenade and discover the oldest buildings, witnesses of the origins of the city. Continue your escape in the Romont region by immersing yourself in the remarkable colors and lights of the Swiss Museum of Stained Glass and Glass Art. Workshops open the doors to glasswork, a chance to be seized! Not far from there, on the town walls, the escape game of the Tour de Fribourg heralds an unusual and intriguing journey. Finally, you should not miss a visit to the Wallpaper Museum in Mézières. The evening ends with indulgence at the Hotel & Restaurant La Belle Croix.
