Travel Tips for Fribourg

Rue de Romont….PEOPLE PLACE...

by Greggor58

I ventured down this street on a Wednesday during a visit in July of 2010 and it was a “sea” of people. A” temporary” market was set up selling fruits and vegetables, fresh breads, flowers, cheeses, and odds and ends.

Rue de Romont is a PEDESTRIAN only street and there are no cars or vehicles allowed here. It’s easily accessed from the train station and can easily be incorporated in a walking itinerary on a route to get you to the Old Town close to the river.

Wednesday and Saturday mornings there is a Farmers Market that operates here but other times you will find the street lined with shops and a few small cafes. It’s a GREAT spot to kick back, enjoy a coffee and watch the comings and goings of some of the people that live here. The market runs only until mid day if you’re interested in seeing this or making purchases.

It was a busy spot and many people were out and about shopping for fresh foods, it was a kind of party like atmosphere with some street musicians adding to the “feeling”. See the attached video of a street musician if you like.

If you’re interested in fresh vegetables or fruit or bread and you’re staying downtown or passing through on your way to or from the train station make this a stopover on your walk about town

by sandysmith

Gruyeres - a beautiful fortified cobble-street town, famous for its cheese production. Be warned the town is uphill from the railway station though! Old houses here are from the 15-17 century. This place is very popular with tourists but thankfully the centre is pedestrianised.

Saint-Nicolas Cathedral - Interior.

by aliante1981

Inside see the altar and the iron railings, as well as 15th century benches decorated with carved figures of the apostles. The main altar is done in neo-Gothic style (to match the church, presumably) and was completed in 19th century. The organ dates back to 1834.

In one of the side chapels there's a fine sculpture depcting Christ being put into the coffin. It's an amusing sight to see how the multi-colored lights from the stained glass play on the sculpture.

Eglise des Cordeliers/ Franziskanerkirche

by globetrott

Eglise des Cordeliers/ Franziskanerkirche looks great mainly from inside and has some very interesting and unique altars and even a "black madonna and black child" . In most cases such wooden sculptures turned black over the decades by the millions of candles that were burnt very close to them. (my last photo)
