day four. our final destination before driving back to holland.
Gruyères stands in the midst of the Fribourg green pre-Alpine foothills. The castle, one of the most prestigious in Switzerland, towers majestically above the medieval town.
its been raining since early in the morning, but as planned we need to visit the Chateau de Gruyeres. so, not much of the view tho with rains, cloudy and little sun shine, but my wife manage to snaps some of the pictures along the way.
Here's what we came here for, the great late-medieval pile of the Château de Gruyères.
The courtyard from somewhere up along the ramparts
The remains of Old Soldiers, with the old soldiers gone.
beautiful glass art painting at the windows.
The Hall of Preposterous Heroic Art
The gardens at the end of the castle, seen from the hall above. This is viewed from the tiny window of the tower room of "Beautiful Luce", who's one of Gruyères' only claims on seriously romantic mythology
the Gruyeres high street with the view of the Alps
P.S. all and all, our swiss trip was one of the best family holiday so far....
