In the Pre-Alps region, tradition and modernity rub shoulders every day. After feeling as if you were living in Heidi's time, you'll suddenly find yourself in Gruyères amid the works of H.R. Giger, the creator of Alien! If you like to hike or bike, the resorts of Schwarzsee, Charmey, Bulle, Moléson and Les Paccots will give you dream-come-true settings. Whatever you do or don't do, do not miss the Castle of Gruyères and the demonstration cheese dairy.
