Fribourg (Freiburg) is a beautiful city with the largest number of medieval buildings in Switzerland. Below are some photos taken from two hikes through the old town and the nearby hills.
The Swiss city Fribourg (Freiburg), capital of the similarly named canton, is a beautiful city with many lovely historic buildings set in the meandering valley of the River Sarine (Saane). Fribourg claims to have the largest number of historic buildings in Switzerland, including over 200 Gothic buildings, almost 2,000 m of town walls, and 14 medieval towers. Fribourg is a great city for walking in but with steep inclines when descending down to the river or scaling the valley banks. The views from either river bank are magnificent.
