Hostellerie des Chevaliers Hotel
Ruelle des Chevaliers
The Gruyere Region, ideal for holidays and leisure activities, has a wealth of destinations for sports and cultural outings, and magnificent hiking routes over flat or hilly terrain.
The Hostellerie Des Chevaliers is also conveniently close to a number of winter sports resorts: Moleson, Charmey, Château d'Oex and Gstaad.
The walls and turrets of Gruyere’s fairytale castle, 50km northeast of Lausanne, bristle atop a single crag rising above the gorgeous rolling lowlands of Canton Fribourg. The whole region – of which Gruyeres village is the best-known attraction – is known as LA GRUYÈRE, taking in the long Lac de la Gruyere and the Sarine valley south of Fribourg, the market town and regional transport hub of Bulle, and a handful of resorts clinging to the slopes of the Prealpine peaks which prelude the Pays d’Enhaut further south.
Dominating the landscape is the great towering wedge of the Moleson, a jutting chunk of mountain rising to 2000m with plenty of hiking possibilities and some gentle skiing in winter. This is dairy country, the most famous product by far being Gruyere cheese, run a close second by the local butterfat-rich double cream, and served with forest fruits in Gruyere’s heavenly, artery-clogging version of afternoon tea.
