Sights of Fribourg:
Fribourg has preserved its medieval center as a whole that is now one of the largest in Europe. Consisting of the neighborhoods Bourg, Auge and Neuveville, its old town is rich in fountains and churches dating from the 12th century until the 17th century. Its Gothic cathedral, reaching 76 meters in height, was built between 1283 and 1490. The fortifications of Fribourg form the most important medieval military architecture of Switzerland: 2 kilometers of ramparts, 14 towers and one big bulwark. (Source: Wikipedia)

Frutigen Railway Viaduct

Our train for Frutigen and Brig came next and I luckily had a little extra time to find its platform. Frutigen is a 10-minute train ride South from Spiez, and it lies in the Kander Valley at the base of the grade to the North portal of the Lotschberg Tunnel near Kandersteg. The tracks cross the Kander Valley on a long, high stone arch bridge about one-mile South of the Frutigen station. You can see the Frutigen Viaduct from the station and you can also see the ruins of a castle on top of a hill that overlooks the viaduct. To reach the Frutigen Viaduct from the railroad station, turn left into the parking lot and go to an alley that runs along the railroad yard. You will see signs in the parking lot before you reach the alley that say "Wander Weg" (walking trail) on yellow arrows. [read more...]
