    Had of course heard of the cheese but didn't know the village was so pretty - now I need to go!

    When I lived there, went to Gruyère on Christmas Eve, what atmosphere! true about medieval feeling, it's like walking into Herman Hesse's Gesammelte Dichtungen! Last visit we drove in/out for cheese, now I want pics of those walls. :)

    It had never occured to me to wonder where the cheese came from - I just enjoy eating it! So it's great to find out more. I love the genuine historical appearance of the village, castle etc. And the cheese plate sounds yummy :-)

    Micheal, great views of the Castle and the protective walls of Gruyères! It looks like you had beautiful weather for you explorations and, yes, Gruyères is one of my favourite cheeses too!

    Another awesome page about your latest adventures in lovely Switzerland. Gruyères was already quite often on our list, but up to now we haven't made it there.

    I like this great cheese, of course but I had no idea how nice and interesting the place looks where it is made.
