Favorite thing: This is RESOURCE TIP...
The main tourist information center is within eye sight of the train station in the center of the downtown of Fribourg. It’s in a great location and provides a great variety of resources to begin your acquaintance with Fribourg.
If you are arriving by train here when you enter into the main foyer of the station you will see large signs indicating the direction of the center. As you exit the front doors of the station the building is to the right, just across the street from the station and is well signed.
This is the place where, if you like, you can easily rent bicycles and or you can rent an electronic IPod like device that guides you through your own self guided tour, mostly of the Old Town. If you chose to rent this it would cost you about 5.00 CHF for the day..
The Info Center is well stocked with a variety of MAPS, brochures and hotel promotions and the staff that I spoke to briefly was fluent in English. I overheard conversations in German, and French so communication for me at least was not an issue.
I grabbed a map of the city which has a “walking tour” outlined that I didn’t follow in fact but it’s a GREAT REFERENCE MAP that I was abloe to use to familiarize myself with what the buildings were that I was seeing. I found it to be somewhat smaller that I would have liked, Im not keen on using reading glasses as I walk about a place that I don’t know well but otherwise I was glad to have it.
Fondest memory: Located at Avenue de la Gare 1
