The Bridges

Ste-Apolline bridge (Villars-sur-Glâne)

An ancient crossing over the Glâne stands at Ste.-Apolline. Today’s stone bridge dates from the 16th or 17th century. The adjacent chapel dedicated to St Apollonia was first documented in 1147 and rebuilt in 1566 after a fire.

Fribourg Poya Bridge

Le pont haubané doté de la plus longue portée de Suisse
De type haubané en partie centrale, le pont de la Poya – issu d’un concours – a été délibérément conçu dans une architecture contemporaine et pensé dans la grande tradition des ponts suspendus de la ville de Fribourg.

Fribourg The Bern Bridge

The original Bern bridge was built a century after the city's foundation. The 40-meter long bridge has ever since been constantly renovated yet stands as Fribourg's last bridge made of wood.

Fribourg The Central Bridge

Built in 1720, this one replaced a covered wooden bridge from 1275. This 4-arch - 70m-long bridge used to be a covered bridge made of wood (1275). Let your eyes caress the old part of town and the impressive Bourguillon cliffs.

Fribourg The Gottéron Bridge

Built between 1956 and 1960 to replace the old suspended bridge that was 150 meters long.

Fribourg The St. John Bridge

Originally, this bridge was a covered, wooden structure with 3 tuff-stone arches. The year 1746 saw the birth of the bridge you can walk on today.

Fribourg The Zähringen Bridge

First was the Frenchman Joseph Chaley's suspended bridge (1834) yet today's 165-meter long bridge was stretched out into the open in 1924.
