Alpine Panorama Trail

From charming Schwarzsee to Breccaschlund and into the jagged limestone landscape of the Greyerzer Alps, over the relatively low Euschelspass, carved out by glaciers, to Jaun, the only German-speaking village in the Gruyère region.
Schwarzsee is in one of the most romantic settings in the foothills of the Fribourg Pre-Alps. Take the time to wander along the shores and make the most of the numerous activities on offer.

The route leads you to the Brecca valley, an area that was shaped by glaciers. The rocky limestone slopes are dotted with dolines. The valley, surrounded by La Pointe de Balachaux to the west, the Schopfenspitz to the south and the Chörblispitz to the east, offers an impressive view over Schwarzsee. Old dry-stone walls shape the landscape. You will see mountain maples and if you are lucky, a pair of eagles, a chamois or marmots.

The path then climbs gently towards the Euschelspass, framed by the Chällihorn and the Chörblispitz, with a magnificent view over the limestone Gastlosen mountain chain, a paradise for climbers. A short descent takes you down to the Ritzlialp Alpine restaurant. Continue through the pastures to Jaun, the only German-speaking village in La Gruyère area. Jaun is known for its refreshing waterfall and the carved crosses in its cemetery. Tip: there are plenty of Alpine restaurants where you can stop for a coffee break all along the route.
