Fribourg - the history

Founded in 1157 by Duke Berthold IV of Zaehringen and sheltered from the ravages of history, Fribourg is an important volume in the complete set of Western civilization and its old town, one of the biggest Medieval architectural ensembles in Europe.

Wherever you go, wherever you look, you come across a surprise, make your way through the centuries, architecture from the past and other objects made by traditional handcrafts as well as modern work. Fribourg is a city that preserves its past and remains open to the future. Art and History have woven a bond of love in Fribourg. Eight centuries of artistic creation have shaped its prestige, perpetuated by many contemporary artists such as Jean Tinguely whose works have gained international acclaim.
