Alpine Panorama Trail

The stage from Jaun to Gruyères will delight food fans, culture lovers and nature enthusiasts. As you walk along the Jogne and the Sarine River, you'll notice the many different ways in which water has shaped the landscape. Churches, chapels and the unique heritage of the La Gruyère region are some of the places to visit.
It begins in the village of Jaun, which is known for its refreshing waterfall, its cemetery with its carved wooden crosses and the Cantorama, which was created in the former parish church, dating back to the 13th century, in 1992. The path then crosses into the French-speaking area and heads towards Charmey. Located at the end of the valley dominated by the high peaks of the Hochmatt and the Gros Brun, the delightful village of Charmey has been the main production centre for Gruyère AOP cheese since the Middle Ages. Its baths and museum are well worth a visit.

After walking alongside Lake Montsalvens, you will reach the dam of the same name: dating back to 1920, this was the first arch dam in Europe. The path crosses the wild Jogne gorge via wooden bridges and galleries carved into the rock. It is bordered by limestone cliffs and ice pot holes. The village of Broc is home to the pilgrimage chapel of Notre-Dame des Marches, which dates from 1636. Perched on the hillside, in a sumptuous green setting, the mediaeval town of Gruyères is renowned for its architecture, history, culture and gastronomy.

Tip: recharge your batteries at the Bains de la Gruyère in Charmey, with a magnificent view over the La Gruyère mountains. While in Broc, visit the Maison Cailler, the Swiss Chocolate Factory and explore the world of Cailler chocolate. Gruyères Castle will take you on a journey through eight centuries of history and legends in the heart of a glorious landscape.
