Gruyeres - not just cheese

Gruyères, FR, Switzerland
1 Kudo
Gruyeres. A cheese heaven. A beautiful castle on a hilltop city. Cobblestone roads and green pastures. If you want a quiet day outside of a large city, Gruyeres is a lovely place to visit. We first went to the cheese factory, obviously, and did the tour. We saw the whole cheese making process and were given samples of the gruyere cheese produced at that facility. Then we made a short walk up a steep hill to see the little medieval village of Gruyere, adorned with many iron grues on the walls. We watched a short show on chocolate making at a little chocolate shop, then visited the Gruyeres Castle. The views from the castle were breathtaking. Switzerland is really a postcard in every view.

Great story. There's nothing like tasting cheese where it's made!
