A real insiders' tip! New territory waits to be explored on the diverse three hour hike between Charmey with its spa baths and Gruyeres with its castle, historic city centre and cheese factory. As part of the Alpine Panorama Trail from SwitzerlandMobility, this trail runs through the dream landscapes of the future nature reserve of Gruyere Pays-d'Enhaut, past the coves of the artificial lake Lac de Motsalvens and through the spectacular Jaunbach Gorge.
This trail tempts like no other, from the heavenly chocolate at Maison Cailler in Broc to the legendary cheese of Gruyeres. Surely no other trail is more deserving of the description sensational than the Gruyere Route. Right at the start in Charmey this diverse trail runs past the tempting wellness and fun thermal baths. It then meanders along Lac de Montsalvens with its fjord-like inlets before being swallowed up on the other side of the dam wall by the spectacular Jaunbach Gorge, where its real highlight lies. Wooden walkways, tunnels and rock galleries, little waterfalls and polished rocks make of this adventurous section a family-friendly excursion.
Located in the brand new visitors' centre in Broc (opened in April 2010), Maison Cailler is a company steeped in tradition, enticing its guests into the world of chocolate with the slogan pure chocolate - pure emotion. Their tour lasts twenty minutes and ends there where it all begins - with making chocolate.
The little medieval town with its imposing 13th century castle is then visible already from afar. At its foot, Maison du Gruyere invites you to discover the legendary Gruyere cheese. Exhibiting fragrances and flavours, it is a complete sensory experience. And if this is still not enough excitement for one day, then take the cable car to the vantage point on the summit of Mount Moléson and let the day become complete there.
