Gruyères: the legend lives.
Explore Gruyères Castle and witness the production of Gruyère AOP.
Legend has it that a crane (a “grue” in French) inspired the name of the town, as well as its famous cheese. Immerse yourself in the region’s mystical world of legends. In “La Maison du Gruyère” you can visit the interactive exhibition “Gruyère AOP, a journey to the heart of the senses”, which follows a drop of milk’s journey from cow to cheese. Then climb up to the picturesque site and explore Gruyères Castle. Its walls and collections will lead you through eight centuries of art, history and legends.
