Gruyères Switzerland – A Journey Back In Time To The Medieval Ages
If you are looking to take a trip back to the medieval ages you should definitely visit Gruyeres Switzerland. The houses, the restaurants and all the streets have retained their original character for more than 800 years, topped off with the Castle which sits at the top of the town.
Located at the base of the Swiss Prealps in the French-speaking canton of Fribourg, Gruyères has a lush vegetation going gently through rolling hills and it is famous for its cheese. We love the cheese fondue!
At the Castle of Gruyères, the Midsummer Day festival is full of surprises for all Middle Ages enthusiasts.
During our visut, the Castle celebrated St. John’s day and presented a medieval fair.
Potters, tailors, smiths, apothecaries and weavers are displayed there wares. Bakers and chefs spread the scents of their dishes. Acrobats and musicians spun in the crowd.
