TASTE MY FRIBOURG

As part of the Taste My Swiss Cities campaign of Switzerland Tourism, Fribourg has also created a food tour: Taste my Fribourg! Do not miss this gourmet walk which is a mix between a city tour and a culinary tasting.
Based on the city's main discovery route, this food tour will take you through the narrow streets of Fribourg, while offering you tasting breaks in places that are as much traditional as trendy.

This tour is proposed by Michel FR, artist and native of Fribourg. Follow the advice of a local person and discover the right addresses of the city. These are a total of 5 places that Michel has selected for you to experience this highly Fribourg adventure.

This tour not only invites you to a great gastronomic experience, but also gives you the opportunity to discover the gems of Fribourg and meet the people of the area. Did you know that in Fribourg they speak Bolze? Ask around as soon as you are out for a walk in Fribourg!
