PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS

This walled city and castle are one of the favorite tourist attractions of the Canton of Fribourg, just south of the Canton of Bern in central Switzerland. Unfortunately, you cannot eat or overnight in the castle proper. The walled city does offer several hotels and restaurants within the wall, one or two of which are worth a visit (most, unfortunately, are owned by commercial enterprises and service is generally poor). A family owned Hotel well worth a stay (and to eat) is the Hotel la Fleur de Lys. Visit their webpage at wwww.hotelfleurdelys.ch. Another family owned hotel restaurant is the Auberge de la Halle--their website is www.chalet-gruyeres.ch: they can also be reached by phone at 026 921 2178. Note that for Science Fiction mavens, you will love the Giger Museem of Fantastic Art and the adjoining bar that looks like something you'd expect from the movie "Alien". "
