The Cathedral Panorama

Join the top of the tower of the cathedral and discover not only the beautiful panorama but also the new information boards.

The top of the St. Nicolas Cathedral has now 10 panels created by the artist fribourgeois Frédéric Aeby.
Instead of being limited to mere geographical and historical explanations, the panorama wants to add a layer of information on uses and local customs of the Freiburger peculiarities. The artist Frédéric Aeby tried to capture the Fribourg soul with humor and poetry.

The project was realized with the participation of Fribourg Tourism, the Parish and Chapter St. Nicholas and the State of Fribourg.

The tower of the Cathedral is open between the 1st of April to the 31st of October , do not hesitate to tclimb up the 365 steps to reach the top!

Opening hours:
Monday to Saturday: from 10 am to 5 pm open non-stop
Sunday and public holiday: from 1 pm to 5 pm

Opening hours are subject to change in case of religious ceremonies.
