Fribourg is an interesting town south-west of Bern :
built on several hills and connected by high bridges...

And at some places you can still see the medieval townwalls of Fribourg.

    Like you, I had only a few hours time for Fribourg - but what a gem! Your pics and tips bring back wonderful memories.

    Yes, this does look like an interesting town, right on the linguistic border so they speak (or at least tolerate) both French and German. They have an opera company which only does one production per year -- six performances in the Aula of the university.

    Michael, excellent overview of Fribourg. I also think that 2 hours is definitely not much for such a lovely city. Unfortunately I haven't visited Fribourg yet, but it is on my list.

    Have only been here ages ago with my parents. The cathedral must be very impressive. So I must revisit this town one day.
