Fribourg's prealp trail: Jaun-Chalet du soldat
Discover the regional route n°78, the “Fribourg's prealp trail”. The "Fribourg's prealp trail" leads in five one-day stages from the medieval town of Fribourg past picturesque Schwarzsee, into the Gruyère region, then along the Gastlosen chain to verdant Pays d’Enhaut and down to the balloonists’ Mecca of Château-d’Oex.
Enjoyable ascent on unsurfaced and surfaced paths to Châlet du Soldat. The landscape is dominated by the jagged Gastlosen chain; colourful flower meadows and lovely views back to the Euschelspass and to the surrounding mountains are a constant surprise.
